I have a Shared folder with multiple users. If I make a new document inside the shared folder, the document is shared with everyone.
However, if I make a To-Do list in that document and then assign the To-Do's to everyone in the document (@doc), the users do not get a notification. It doesn't show up in their To-Do list either.
It seems the only way it shows up in their To-Do list is if the user navigates to the document. But this is counterintuative considering the user doesn't know the document is there without a notification.
Am I doing something wrong? How do others share their To-Do lists without manually notifying each person when there's a new doc?
Thanks for any help!

Thanks for your help Jay.
However the tasks do not show up on the homepage, nor in the app, for the shared users. I wait for quite a while, and then sometimes the task only shows up after navigating to the doc manually. Sometimes it doesn't show up at all. Is there a delay in the syncing?
Or.... I understand I have to invite the users to the docs (not just the folder) for them to get notifications, but do I need to do the same for them to just see the new tasks?
What do companies do if they want to add multiple users to their To-Do lists? Inviting even just 5 or 10 users can get quite time-consuming every time you want to add a new list, especially if you don't remember their email addresses or usernames right off the top of your head.
