Hi Steve --
At the moment, as you described, that's the only way to accomplish what you're looking for. However, we are working on a plan to enable task sharing with external users; that feature is still forthcoming.
Well, I was able to find a "workaround" to add people in bulk to Networks you just move a task from one network to another and all the People become connected to that network too. Is there any similar workaround to add them to Projects? This will take me hours and hours to manually invite everyone to all 110 Projects.
manually changing a public project to Private and adding people to it COMPLETELY DELETES the project from my list of all projects and none of those added are notified. I can't even be added to anything on this project any longer. I should say "projects" because there are two that I wiped out like this by making them private.
I noted after searching about this for a while that this is a bug that was noted in early 2013. Is there a fix or workaround? Obviously we can't have projects and tasks disappear and
