Can't assign a task to a member



I have created a project in which we are 3 people. 


When I create a task, I can only put me and one of the other members as a responsible, but not the third one and I don't know why.


Additional info: this third member CAN put herself as a responsible of any task.


Thanks for the help!

Hi @Nacho Martín and welcome to the community.

What do you mean by "responsible"? Assignee, reporter or another field?

Usually assigning a task to someone else need two permissions:

  • Assign issues permission (so that YOU can be able to assign an issue)
  • Assignable user permission (so that A USER can be assigned to an issue)

There is another permission, which is the modify reporter, which change the reporter.

So kindly provide more details and/or screenshots so that we can help you.

Hi Alex,


I don't know the exact translation because I have it in spanish, but I'm 99% sure that I'm talking about the "assignee".

I attach 2 screenshots. On the first one you will see the members. I am Nacho Martin and I am the admin of the space. Then we have Judith and Ibtissam (is she who I can't assign as "assignee" on the tasks).

On the second screenshot, you will see that, once I deploy the "assignee" tab, Ibtissam doesn't appear.

Did you try to type that user's name into that field?
