Tip: "Sometimes you need to assign one task or project to a few persons. You can't do it in the application but you can create a special user, eg Back Burner. Than you can ask some members of your staff to take care of his projects and tasks. Please note, you need to make this user active and to allow other users to complete user’s projects and tasks."
