Hello, we are starting to use Glip pretty heavily in the business now (Its Great!) and we are looking to use the tasks option however one thing I noticed is that you cannot assign tasks to teams, just to individuals.  I have a team setup with my direct reports and if I want to assign them a team task I have to add all their names in.

Would it be an idea to add teams to this also?

Hi Stewart - We do have a way that will at least make it easier for you to add everyone as an assignee to the task. You have to do it through the Tasks app though. To get there, click on "Tasks" in the left pane, although a better way is to click on the "TASKS" section in the shelf/right pane of the team you're working in. That will take you into the Tasks app prefiltered to show just tasks from the given team.

Once in the Tasks app, find the task in question on the page and then click on the Assignee field. In the popup, you'll see the headshots of all team members at the bottom, followed by one at the very end with little person icons in it. Click that one to add all team members as assignees on the task.

Hi Shelly,

You can either access Tasks via the Glip Team Room itself (whatever the name is) or you can go to the Tasks section located towards the bottom of the left-hand pane:

From here you can edit all Tasks within any Group by filtering it:

Does that help?

It would be great to get the filter on the mobile app to see team tasks.
