Adding a member to a card

Board members can also be added to individual cards to indicate association or to assign those members to the card. Adding a member to a card automatically subscribes them to the card. They will receive notifications for the following:

  • All comments
  • Adding, changing, and upcoming due dates
  • Card moves and archives

Note that if card members choose to unsubscribe at a later point, they will no longer receive these notifications.
