๐Ÿ“ Note: Task management is only available on the Growth plan and up.

Depending on your role in Transifex, you can assign tasks to other team members. You can find more information about user roles and their permissions here.

When you create a task as a Project Maintainer or an administrator, you can either automatically assign collaborators or skip that part and add collaborators later through the Tasks page.

Automatic assignment

Automatically assigning collaborators involves language coordinators being assigned to subtasks tied to their respective languages. The assignment process for translators and reviewers varies based on the task type:

  • Translate: All translators and reviewers will be assigned to the translation subtask based on the language they belong to.

  • Review: All reviewers will be assigned to the review subtask based on the language they belong to.

  • Proofread: All reviewers will be assigned to the proofread subtask based on the language they belong to.

Admins and Project Maintainers can auto-assign subtasks on the assigning step while creating a task or do it later via the Auto-assign option. Team Managers can also use the Auto-assign option but only on pre-existing tasks.

๐Ÿ“Note: Reviewers can start working on review tasks immediately. The subtask is not locked.

Manual assignment

If you want to assign collaborators at a later time or if you wish to modify or remove assignees from a task, you can easily manage this through the tasks page.

Navigate to the main menu, click Tasks, and locate the task for which you wish to update the list of assignees. Click on the task to expand and view its details, including subtasks. For each subtask, click on the "Add assignees" icon.

Finally, you can use the search box to find the desired collaborators.

๐Ÿ“ Note: Changing the assignee from Transifex AI to another person is not an available option for Transifex AI translation subtasks.
