When creating a task in Slack
The quickest way to assign a task to a team member or yourself in Slack is when you create a new task.
To create a new task in Slack, type "/todo" followed by the task details. To assign a team member when you create the task, tag the team members username.
E.g. /todo Email client invitations @Kay
This will assign the task directly to Kay when creating the task. The assigned team member will receive a direct message from todobot when they are assigned a task
To assign a task to yourself when creating the task, replace the username with @me
E.g. /todo email client invitations @me
By typing @me at the end of the task, the task will be assigned to you
Press enter to submit the task
