is there is a way to select my user for every task I create by default

That I’ll not need every time to assign the task to my user

Otherwise it’s on unassigned and it’s annoying

Thanks a lot for help

    Hey @fivestars,

    If you're on the Pro plan, you could use the Assign Task automation which assigns tasks in a chosen column automatically.

    To do this:

    1. Click the ellipsis beside a section name.
    2. Click Automations.
    3. Click Add Automation at the bottom.
    4. Select Assign Task.
    5. Choose the section and assignee.
    6. Click Done.

    All new tasks added or moved to the chosen column will be assigned to the chosen person. You could add this automation to every column.

    Please let me know if this helps!

    I would like this. I know I can use automations but that seems tedious especially when I have a dozen projects each with at least four columns that's over 40 automations I'd have to create.

    I didn't care about tasks being unassigned until I started using the integration with MindMeister and now I have a blank avatar next to my nodes with tasks.
