Within Teamwork Projects, you can quickly assign a task to one of the roles created on your project. 

When you use a role to assign users, this assigns the task to all people who have been added to the role.

When creating a new task, enter the @ symbol in the What needs to be done section and type the role name, or select which role you want to assign from the menu that pops up.

Once you have mentioned the role, you can then click Multiple People to select the Each person must do this option, if you wish. This will create a separate task for each user on the role.

You can also use the @ mention feature to assign a specific user. Using the @name shortcode you can quickly assign the task to that person.

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.
