Assign auto-created tasks to creator

In Podio you can auto-create tasks when an app item is created. Here you can assign the task to a specific user or to no one. Would it be a good idea to add the option to assign the tasks to the creator of the app item?

 

Cheers! Rik

I believe this would be a powerful feature. What does Podio think of this?

Hey Rik,

This is something we have been discussing internally as well. I agree it could be very powerful, thanks for sharing your idea. We don't have any solid plans or timeframe but it is a great input.

In my understanding it would even be more flexible and generic if you could choose from certain user fields (like creator or custom user attributes like "responsible") to assign the task to! that would be very helpful!

Yes please.  We're using Podio for online course development at a large university, and we usually have 100+ new courses every quarter, so the task lists can get overwhelming.  It'd really help if when an app auto-creates tasks for a new course, they were assigned to the person either who created the course, or to someone designated when the course was created (via an app reference).

this could be particularly good for meetings - tasks such as ensuring that actions are captured and transposed into their own individual tasks should rightly belong to the meeting organiser. Organiser can of course delegate, but responsibility should initially lie with them.
