Set Assignees

You can assign a task to team members so they will know what tasks they are responsible for. When the tasks get updated, the assignee will get notified as well. This way everyone is on the same page.

Single assignee

To assign a task to a member, click on the assignee icon, and select the member directly or use @ on the keyboard then select the member using the up/down arrow key.

You can also right-click on the selected task(s) and select Set assignees to assign the task(s).

right click set assignee

Tip: By typing in an email address, you can also invite new members who are new to Quire.

Multiple assignees

Multiple assignees are only available in the Professional, Premium, Enterprise plans. More information can be found on our pricing page.

To assign a task to more than one member (aka multiple members), click on the assignee icon, and then the Add to assignees icon to toggle on the multiple assignees mode.

Tip: Instead of always replacing the existing assignees when setting assignees, you can change the settings in the Project Settings to add the newly selected assignees as multiple assignees.

Navigate to the down arrow next to your project name at the top and select Options. In the Others section, enable the option Always use multiple assignees instead of replacing the original assignee.
