Lots of people in our community collaborate through Google Docs (or Slides, or Sheets, etc.). If your group needs a quick and seamless way to assign tasks, consider “tagging” group members either on the document itself, or in a comment. You don’t need to leave the document you’re working from – Google will recognize when you have typed out a task, and if you add a person’s name to the sentence, it will offer to “tag” that person (prompting a notification) in a comment that it creates. You can also create a comment on a document and tag the person yourself – when they open the document, that item you’ve tagged them in on will be highlighted. Watch the short little how-to gif on this website, which takes you through the process.
