assign copies of task

New user here, using free version (online not mobile app) to test this out. Trying to assign copies of a task and it’s not working. I don’t get the two people icon next to the assignee per the video and blog post. The only thing I can do is assign it to someone else on my team, it won’t copy.
But I’m trying to copy a whole task, as we have many similar tasks. The project detail page looks different than on the blog post–has it been updated and now things are different?

@Manya_Chylinski,

Did you open the task’s Task Detail pane (right side) and click the Assignee field there? You should see the two-person icon.

If you instead click on the Assignee column without opening Task Detail, you won’t see the two-peron icon.

If it’s not that, I’m not sure and will defer to the others here!

Welcome to the Forum @Manya_Chylinski and apologies for the confusion:

As @lpb explained, in order to assign copies of a task you first need to open the task details. Once there you should be able to see the two-person icon once you click on the assignee field - please see the screenshot attached.

I hope this helps Manya but please let us know if you need further assistance on this!
