What is the difference between individual task and group task?

When assigning tasks, choose between "Assign Individually" for separate tasks per person or "Assign as a group task" for a shared task status and comments. Adjust task types anytime.

When you assign a task to more than one person, you will be presented with a new option.

Assign Individually

  • When you assign the task individually, two independent tasks will be created for each person.

  • As the creator of the task, you will be able to comment on each task separately without assignees seeing your comments.

  • This task type can be used in scenarios where you want each employee to complete the same task - such as revising the quarterly forecast.

Assign as a group task

  • When you assign the task as a group task, only one task will be created and the task status will be common for all assignees.

  • Whenever someone marks the task as completed, the task will be completed for all assignees. Comments left to the task will be accessible to all assignees of the tasks.

  • This task type can be a good example for group projects where all members work together to accomplish a common task.

Please keep in mind that you can always edit the tasks later on and change their status from individually assigned to assigned as a group task.
