This feature is used when a user has added a task, issue or request or submitted an issue by e-mail, but has no way to assign them to a member of the target project, since he or she has the ‘View and manage members or assignees’ permission disabled in the role.
To make sure a task, issue or request in the situation just described gets assigned to one of the target project’s member, you can specify who will be assigned a task, issue or request automatically, as and when they are added or submitted to the project.
To specify the auto-assigned project members, follow these steps:
- In Activity Center, click the name of the project you wish to edit.
- In the Project details section, click .
- Click Auto assign.
- Select a default assignee for tasks, issues and/or requests.
- Click on the "Save" button for the changes to take effect.
