      Status Update: 4 February 2022

      Hi folks, my name is Daniel Ayele and I'm a Product Manager on the Confluence team where I manage our collaboration feature family. Thank you for your feedback and suggestion to add support for assigning a task to multiple users. I'm excited to announce that we have plans on our roadmap to make a number of improvements to the tasks experience in Confluence to make it easier for customers to create, assign, and report on tasks. As part of this effort we will take this suggestion into consideration. Stay tuned to our community and other product update channels to learn more when we bring this functionality to market.

      You can add multiple @mentions to a task in a task list, but the second person does not get a notification in their workbox, and does not see this task in their task list.

      Steps to Reproduce:

      • Create a new page
      • Add 3 tasks.
        • One mentioning @user2
        • One mentioning @user2 and @user1
        • One mentioning @user1 and @user2
      • Look at the workbox for user2

      See User2Workbox.png

      • User2 only sees two notifications
      • User2 only sees two tasks assigned to them

      Expected Result

      • User2 should see all 3 notifications
      • User3 should see 3 tasks assigned to them
