Assign one of multiple contacts as a task owner


I have a project plan that currently uses 2 columns for task management:

Assigned To: resource that is the owner of the task

Additional Resources: resource(s) that will also be working on the task

Rather than having two columns, is it possible to have all 3 resources in 1 column and identify Resource1 as the owner?

Thank you!

    Hi @SteveE ,

    Simple answer is what you currently have is ideal. As, if you've all three resources in one column, there isn't a way to identify just one out of them resource as the owner. It might help if you try to explain the significance of the owner. If it is for all the users to know who is leading the task, you can consider a behavioral change of adding the owner as the first person added to the multi select assigned to column followed by the additional resources. This way, the first resource name that appears is understood as the owner.



    Reach out for any help on licenses, configuration, or training

    I think the way you're doing it currently is the only way to accomplish this.
