Regarding Quick sub-tasks add-in

How do I  create a subtask and auto-assign to a persion? I have tried the following ways, but none have worked.


- task1 / assignee:"David Smith" 
- task2 assignee:"Dave Smith" 
- task3 / assignee: "Dave Smith" 
- task4 assignee: "Dave Smith"

could you please provide an example that I can test to confirm it works?

Not sure I understand your question. Do you have some script creating sub-tasks ? If yes, what is the script language and what triggers the script ?

@Michael Lichtenstein Afaik the username, not the full-name, not the user-key is used in the template language.

So the example for a user with full-name "David Smith" and username davidsmith:

- task 1 / assignee:"davidsmith"

The full syntax is documented in the project's wiki here:
