A Follower has no formal responsibility for a Task but is kept in the loop and notified about any activity associated with it. It is helpful to follow a Task if you are interested in it and want to know how it’s progressing.
Anyone can follow any Task they can access themselves, or they can be added as a Follower to a Task they couldn't ordinarily access by someone on that Task’s team.
How do I follow a Task?
Open the Task you want to follow, then click at the bottom of the "Team" section.
If you later decide you want to unfollow the Task, click in the same place.
How will I receive notifications for Tasks I follow?
- You’ll receive notifications in the nightly digest.
- Notifications will appear on the Task itself and in your notifications window.
Who can add and remove Followers?
How do I add or remove Followers?
Open the Task with which you want to work, then click in the top right corner of the "Team" section.
In the resulting window, locate the "Followers" field. In that field, you can:
- Open the drop-down menu to reveal a list of up to ten users including yourself and your most frequent selections.
- Begin typing someone's name in that field to search for them among all users (not just those top choices).
In the resulting drop-down menu, select the correct user.
- Click .
This change will be noted in the activity log, and anyone whose status changed will be notified.
