Default follower and solver in To-Do list

Thanks to default followers and solver of the tasks in particular To-Do list you can preset who receives notifications. You can set who is notified about new activities in the existing or new tasks.

Go to particular To-Do list and setup followers and solver.

This feature is great for example in kanban, where you have To-Do lists organized per task status (Inbox, In progress, Done). If you set up users who follow a To-Do list In progress, everytime when another task is moved from different To-Do list, they receive a notification.

It helps you keep an eye on the progress and secure smooth flow and cooperation.
