Who are Users and Followers?

A user is the person responsible for completing the tasks in a given project. Any task can have multiple users assigned to it. The user can share files and add comments to the project dashboard, and can update the task status. On the other hand, followers are the merely observers of an active project and they are added to receive notifications and updates about project developments so they can stay in the loop.

Role of a Follower

A follower is anyone who wants to be kept in the loop as the project progresses. The follower does not have an active role in the life cycle of the task, can receive tasks updates.

  • A follower will get a notification whenever:
  • A new comment is posted or if any minor changes happen on the schedule.
  • Any new attachment is added or when a task is marked complete.

Note: Any administrator, team manager, task manager, or a project manager can be added as a follower in a project and they have the ability to unfollow a project. Also, you cannot add guests as a follower.
