You can assign a task to a user in several cases. When you´re creating a task when you writing a comment in a task discussion or on any page with a To-Do list and tasks.
By assigning a task to a user, you say that you want to solve it or at least start solving it.
Once a user is assigned to the task, he/she receives alerts about the different statuses of the task. E.g. when someone comments a task or changes the date. You can set up your e-mail notifications and other alerts as you need them.
Assign a task to a user when you´re creating it
When creating a task, navigate to the Who Tasks section, where to select a specific user.
You can select only one user to solve the task.
Assign/Change assignments when commented on a task
Frequent operations over tasks are comments. To add a comment and submit the task to another colleague, check the resolver’s change and select it from the list.
