Default task assignee = self
« on: March 23, 2009, 11:05:28 am »
Hello,

I find that I add alot of tasks that I assign to myself. It could be convenient to have "Me" as the default setting in the task combobox instead of "Don't assign", which also promotes better project management practices by not having unassigned tasks and making you think about who should do something the moment you add it.

Cheers,
Fanis

Hi Fanis,

This is quite debatable in fact. We have taken the decision of making the "Don't assign" the default setting as in a regular project, problems are first split into specific activities and later assigned to resources.

We know this is not the way everybody works though, so we took the following decision: If the filter is set to filter: Assigned to / me, we can assume you are only viewing your own tasks, and if you add a task it is most likely for you and will by default be set to "Me": this applies to all values of the "Assigned to" filter.

Please tell me if this works for you, cheers,

Carlos
