Thank you for all the feedback. We’ve completed the work to support assigning a task to multiple people, and it is now available for use world wide.

The way this was implemented doesn't make sense. The common use case is that everyone in a channel or group of users, needs to perform task individually by a due date. Not that 10 or less users are all possibly doing the same single task and they're collectively just supposed to agree it's done at some point, at which point one of them is supposed to figure out to mark it as done. Is there another user voice item to implement this in a way that people are asking for in these comments? If I've got a channel or team of 1000 users, and I need them to complete a survey by a certain date, why can't I just create a task for everyone currently in the team which contains a list of everyone marking it as completed individually? That's what makes sense and what everyone asking for. Maybe this is something available in a different plugin than planner tasks?
