Assign task to multiple users

Hello, I need to add a task to multiple users (in other words, 
 i need to duplicate "assigned to" and "due date" multiple times in the same task.) Is there a way to do it?

I am using a quick action-new task. The quick action is on the Account and Contact objects, and I am using it to replace the standard OOB tasks layout.

Hi Michael,

You can create task and assign it to the Group(instead of multiple users) which will create the duplicate task records as mentioned in the below Idea which was delived in Summer'18 release:

Hi Agustin, I am not seeing that option in my org. It looks like I can only assign to 1 person:

Hi Michael, it is not available for quick actions, it should be done this release, check this idea

Thank you. Is there any possible workaround? Can I duplicate the "assigned to" field in a custom field? Or can I use the same "Assigned to" field multiple times in a visualforce page?

Hi Michael, check my first response, those are the workarounds I can think of using standard tasks. I would try them out before going for a programmatic solution.

If it helps please like or mark as correct if you could solve your issue.

Good luck
