Adding multiple people to a new project

To set up my question, let us assume that I have 5 people that will need to be added to most projects that I create. However, usually 2 or 3 of them will only be watchers of the project while the other 2 or 3 will be assigned tasks. However, regardless of whether they are assigned tasks or not, I want the project to appear on their dashboard when they log in.

I understand that once I create a project, I can click on the project people tab and add each person individually. What I would like to do is to add multiple people to the project at once instead of adding each person individually.

Is this possible?

Thanks,

Jason

    Hi Jason

    Thank you for your question (yes we made it public).

    You said:

    1) >>regardless of whether they are assigned tasks or not, I want the project to appear on their dashboard

    Please note that if you want them to see all the tasks in the project you must make them a project manager.

    Otherwise they will only see "their" tasks - ie what they have been assigned or are watching

    2) >>What I would like to do is to add multiple people to the project at once instead of adding each person individually.

    Sorry we dont do that. But adding them should be very quick. Once added into your dooster account you only have to use the "add from another project" button

    You can use "add from another project" in either the project people screen OR while adding / editing tasks

    3) If you can think of a UI / method for adding multiple people to a project at once please feel free to suggest it and we might implement it.

    But we want to keep things as simple as possible - which ain't simple ! - and hopefully you'll agree that adding them via checkbox in "add from another project" will be good enough?

    Thanks again
