    Hi Kelli, great suggestion!

    I think the best way forward with this idea is using User Groups as assignees, however, Wrike is purpose-built so thatย individuals can be assigned. This is due to the idea that things usually get done when one person is assigned responsibility of a task ๐Ÿ™‚

    You can share a task with a User Group which might be a useful workaround for now. This way every person in the group will be notified that they've been mentioned in a task and one or more people who need to work on it can be assigned or assign themselves. You can share easily by commenting (and the members will get a notification) or by clicking the share icon above the description field.

    Your suggestion will be included in the Reports we send to the Product Teamย and I'd like to hear your thoughts on the above workaround ๐Ÿ‘

    That is not the same thing.ย  What she needs is for the task to be able to be assigned to the group.ย  So where it says Ben B. to be able to add Marketers as a group to the assignees by clicking the "+" next to Ben B, then selecting "Marketers" there.ย  This is what would be helpful.ย
