How do the "at" (@) and "hashtag" (#) signs work in Tasks?


Overview & background


Fieldwire has a couple of quick-assign features to help you enter your information quickly and efficiently. 


Re-assigning categories and task assignees


@ sign

You can use the 'at' sign (@) while writing in a task to quickly assign categories and assignees. For example, if you were to type "@Kevin @HVAC" in a task, that task will be assigned to Javed and will be associated with the HVAC category.

You can also tag multiple people in a task. For example, if you write “@David @Kevin @HVAC,” both people will receive notifications and be added as 'Task Watchers'. However, the first user in the comment (in this case, David), would be made the assignee of the task. Both receive notifications when the task is updated in any way. 




 # sign

Hashtags (#) help you add further structure to your project. If you include a hashtag within a task, such as writing a comment that reads "This is related to #RFI_41," it will generate a new hashtag that you can then use as a filtering tool. So you could then write "#RFI_41" into another task in order to associate the two together.
