We have started to investigate something called "card contributor". It is not the same as assigning multiple members to a card but get the possibility to have one assignee/responsible and then add those that contribute to the card.

We have already received good input with a lot of comments but we are happy for more. So here I would like to know your thoughts around the different options:
1. Adding contributors in the same way as an assignee. The contributor will view the card in their personal overview. The checklist will still continue to be simple as today. With this option I am thinking of keeping it simple and not having additional feature of marking your effort as done. You would simply remove yourself from the card when done. Is it important to be able to signal/notify the assignee of the card when contributors are done with their part? Maybe comments is enough for this. Here it would be scalable to then also start adding a group as contributors for future.
2. Add contributors on checklist items. The contributor will also view the card in their personal overview. Probably adding contributors on an item would work best if only applied to one member instead of a team.

What would you prefer if you had to select between those to options? What are your needs?

Thanks for taking your time!

Best regards

Hi Angeline!
Thanks for sharing your feedback with us! On our roadmap for this year is to develop a feature called Card contributors. It is not the same as assigning multiple members to a card but you get the possibility to have one assignee and then add those that contribute to the card. How exactly this will work I will leave to the development teams but I think this will help you in your work.
Best regards
Silvija

This is perfect. As long as they can easily follow the cards, that will work. We'll be on the lookout for this feature.

I think the most urgent need is number 1 below. That both people assigned see the card is assigned to them on the boards and their overview and reminders include cards they are a contributor to or assigned to with someone else. I think the management of specific tasks between the two assignees and updates can be managed well enough through comments and a simple checklist.

Ideally, it would be nice to have the checklist be more robust with each item having its own assigned and due date....but as a second priority.

Others expressed that they are ok with using comments and removing from cards when completing, but there is concern about reporting out later on the card - example if you download it etc would it still show up later that you did this or would all traces be removed?

Hi,

From an urgent perspective we do prefer number 1, then we can define how we manage the checklist within the team, maybe through comments as mentioned. It will be better if each checklist item can be assigned separately but let's start with the simple way.
Thank you.

Hi!

Thanks for taking time and adding more input to this investigation!

Jennifer, it is great that you also add ask about how we later can track contributors also when downloading the board. It is also something we need to take care of. Do you today download the board on regular basis?

Hi. I think both would be great but personally the priority would be to option 1. Being able to see the status of the card for all people assigned would be a great enhancement. Peoples names can always be added to each checklist item or indeed individual cards created for the if required.

Normally people would download possibly once a quarter or every 6 months to get an idea to help prepare for some quarterly reviews, but I would put that as secondary to after the multiple assignee is implemented.
