Assigning people to an item is a good way of letting them know they are responsible for it. People assigned to an item will receive notifications if it is nearing its due date (or if it's overdue) and will by default be selected to be notified when its status is changed.

Items assigned to someone will be displayed on their project overview page and will be highlighted in the content hub.
