Task Followers

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 2017-06-29_1651.png at the bottom of the "Team" section.

If you later decide you want to unfollow the Task, click 2017-06-29_1652.png 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 2018-03-27_0432.png 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 2018-04-16_1153.png.

This change will be noted in the activity log, and anyone whose status changed will be notified.
