How to Add Followers to a Project or Task
Apart from adding assignees to a project or a task, you can also add followers (watchers or viewers) for effective supervision. Unlike assignees who get instant email notifications about all small or big project updates, followers can choose to get notified instantly, daily, or receive a weekly digest.
This helps followers:
Track a project passively & assist only when needed
Remain informed of updates on a frequency of their choice
Easily filter tasks assigned vs. followed (supervised)
For example, if you have a client project with multiple tasks, you can add someone from the client’s side as a follower to keep them informed of the progress. The “Users” in the screenshot below are active participants, while the “Followers” are passive watchers.
How to Add a Follower to a Project
Step 1: Log in to your ProProfs Project account and navigate to a project that you want to add a follower to.
Step 2: Go to the “Followers” column and click the user icon. Select a user from the drop-down list to assign as a follower of the project.
The user you select will appear in the Project’s row under the Followers column.
How to Add a Follower to a Task
Step 1: Open a project.
Step 2: Click the icon under the “Followers” column and select the user to assign the role to a task.
Once you add a follower to a task, they will receive a notification via email to monitor the task.
Below is what tasks under a project will look like after adding followers:
That is all about adding followers.
