How do I...

How do I create a task for someone else?

Answer

Task lists on a page are useful for assigning and managing tasks in a team.

To add a task list on a page:

  1. Edit the page.
  2. Choose the task-list icon  in the editor toolbar, or press [ and then ] on your keyboard.
  3. Type the description of the task.
  4. If you want to assign a task to someone, type '@' and the person's name in the task description. (For more information about @mentions, see Using Mentions.) That person will receive a notification, and the task will appear in their personal task list in the workbox. If you @mention yourself, the task will appear in your personal task list.
  5. To end the list, press Enter twice.
