i am trying to assign a task to multiple users, how would you do it? it seems
that you can only assign a task to one user.

thanks

Go to the list, select settings and click list settings. Under the
colums sub section, click the "Assigned to" column name. Under the
Additional Column Settings section, make sure allow multiple
selections is set to yes. Click ok. You should then be able assign a
task to multiple people.

Ok so the next problem to solve is that if you want each person to complete the task. So IOW you have one task that multiple people need to complete. It seems that if one person goes in and does the task and then someone else goes in it will over ride the first task completion. Am I wrong? If so what am I missing?
