When collaborating with other teams and organizations, you can assign tasks to external contacts or set them as task followers to better manage cross-team projects.
In the left navigation bar, open Tasks. Create a new task or click on an existing task to edit it. You can set external contacts as task assignees or task followers.
Tips: Task assignees can track task progress, edit task details, set collaborators, and modify task due time. Task followers can only track task progress but can't edit the task.
