Do you know if it is possible to assign the same task to many users ? or a group of user ?
Yes, it is!
You can use multiple contact columns to assign to different roles. Such as Project Manager, Consultant and so on.
Will that work for you?
I hope this helps you!

Feel free to contact me about help with Smartsheet, integrations, general workflow advice, or something else entirely.
Yes it is a limitation, to assign the same task to multiple resources. No idea when this will be made available.
The workaround is that you need to have the same task twice in the plan and then assign task to the respective resource. This only "bloats" the plan, but i see this is the only way, especially if you are also looking at resource loading across projects.
Hope this helps..
As Robert and Andree mentioned, there are a couple of common approaches to this:
You can't currently add multiple people in the same cell, and this is something we're working on. There should be an update on this later this year.
Thank you for your answers ;-)
I will follow your recommendation.
Happy to help!
Hi again Olivier,
Yes, assigning multiple people to a task is now available.
Please see the attached link/screenshot for more information.

We're pleased to announce that you can now quickly & easily assign tasks to multiple people. To do so, check the new "Allow multiple contacts per cell" checkbox in any contact column. The cells in that column will then allow up to 20 people to be added.
You can still leave that option unchecked when you only want a single person to be assigned to a task at a time.
Adding multiple contacts to a cell is useful not only for assigning people, but also for other scenarios where you want to associate multiple stakeholders with a row. For example, you might want those people to receive notifications when the row changes, or you may want them to appear in reports and filters.
For some projects, you may want to add 2 contact columns: one for the primary owner, and another for additional team members.
We welcome you to try it out and let us know what you think.
