I am a bit confused regarding task level permissions. I am trying to only allow users edit/see tasks they are either a follower of, or is an assignee of. Below is my situation:
- I have a private project of which I am the sole member. In the “share” properties, I allow all “task followers” to have the “can edit” permission.
- I upload a list of tasks via the CSV importer, and within the “assignee” field I enter person B (another teammate) and “follower” field I enter person C (a different teammate).
- I check the task and I can verify that person B is indeed the assignee and is automatically set as a follower. Person C is also set as a follower.
- Since I set the “task followers” to have “can edit” permissions, I am expecting that person B and person C can both edit the task because they are followers, even though they are not a member of the private project. However, this is not the case, neither B or C have access to edit the task.
Can someone please clarify the mix up here? Why can’t person B & C edit the task they are following in a private project?
