Is there a way to assign a task to multiple users?

We have Developers that may work on a task together.  Is there a way to assign it to both?

Hi @Kerry Wilson 

You cannot assign a single Jira issue (Task) to multiple users at a time.

Best approach is to break the main Task by creating sub-tasks and then assign those sub tasks within the team as needed.

Read the "Assignee" field as who is responsible for completing / progressing the task. If this is put on more than one person, it will end up in: "I thought, you were going to do it..."



Hii @Kerry Wilson 

As @Gikku Mathew John said its right, but you can make custom field as multi user picker and then assign it to the screen of your project and when you want to assign a task to 2 or more users, you mention all users in that. And for sending notification you can add the custom field that you have made.


Best regards
