Add work item followers | Zoho Sprints Help

Add work item followers

Following a work item is different from getting assigned to a work item. A user who is not working on a task can still be added as a follower to get notified of its updates. This is effective to allow other team members in on a work item to keep them informed. For instance, an item that you're working on might have some dependency on another item. You can add that item's assignees as followers to your item to keep them in the loop.

Similarly, you can follow work items that can impact the feature that you're working on. This allows you to watch the developments in those work items and align your work accordingly, or raise any red flags in the process.

Zoho Sprints enables followers to receive feed and email notifications regarding each activity in the work item.
