    Hi A and Shirley,

    A task can only have one assignee, so if you need multiple people collaborating on a task then you should use an app instead:

    Hope this can help - please reply here if you have any questions on how to set that up.

    We also need this for tasks where multiple people collaborate on a task, or either of two people can handle the task.

    You should seriously consider changing this.

    The task function is great and having to use an app for tasks with more than one assignee going against what Podio is meant to do.
    That is making workflows smooth and simple.....
    You will often find situations where it is needed to involve a colleague in a simple task. If we have to finish the original task, and create a collaborative task in an app, workflow is no longer smooth.

    Love the new features that comes up once in a while, but please don't forget to keep things simple to ensure ease of use...

    Hi Soledad,

    Podio tasks were made to be a more personally managed system, but you can easily accomplish what you're describing using an app. Each item is seen as a "task", and you can use app referencing to tie those tasks to the projects and other items in Podio.

    Here is our support article regarding the task app:
