Is there an option to assign a specific individual to a trello card as the assignee?

Edited

Is there an option to assign a specific individual to a trello card as the primary assignee?

 

For instance, a specific card would be considered a task to complete.

That task is assigned to "this" person, and the members section is the team they work with.

 

Is there a power-up for this maybe?

Hi @Roxanne Dockter ! Welcome to the community :) Members are typically used as a way to communicate who's assigned to a task, however, it is possible to add multiple members to a card. It is however a best practice to clarify who is the single owner or main person responsible for a task, which sounds like what you want to achieve. In this case, you'd want a separate field to capture the owner. There's no in-built Trello field for this, so you could create a custom dropdown "Owner" field to capture this, or use labels. The dropdown field is probably the better option seeing as it's a single select field.
