We have a project sheet and my boss often assigneds a task to more than one individual.  However he does not want multiple lines that are duplicates "just to assign the same item to multiple people",  He does want to be able to send reminders.  

 

What to do?

 

I've thought of creating an email group - giving it a name and using it as an assigned individual but don't know if that would work.

 

I will welcome any and all suggestions and thanks, in advance!

Hi Susan,

Yes, assigning multiple people to a task is now available.

Hi all,

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.
