Within Teamwork Projects, you can create roles within a project, which allow you to easily assign tasks to a group of people or mention them in a comment.

Adding a new role

To create a role, go to the people section of your project and switch from the People tab to the Roles tab:


You can then use the 'Add Role' button on the right to create a new role:

Adding a Role

When you add a new role, you can choose a name for that role, and add a description so you can add any notes to define it further.

Then, choose from the people on the project by selecting the checkbox next to their name, and click 'Add Role' to create it:


Note: The shorter and simpler the role name, the easier it will be to '@mention' later.

Editing a Role

Once you have some roles added to your project, you will be able to see them listed in the Roles tab under the people section of the project.

To the right of the role name, you will see icons to edit (change the role details using the same screen you used to create the role) or delete the role:

Hovering over the profile image for each person currently listed in that role will give you the option to remove them, or go directly to their profile:


Clicking the plus icon to the bottom right of the list of people will give you the option to quickly select new people to add to the role.

Note: When a role is used to assign a task to a group of people, the users are then assigned directly and the reference to the role itself is removed.
