I've recently started using the Collaborator abilty with another pro user co-worker. I've found that the horizontal space needed to have the reassign button field work is far more space than I'd like to give it :).
I'm thinking if the result of clicking the reassign button should pull up a small fly-out window (like hovering the checkbox or sub-task icons) that would give you the ability to select the collaborator, and Ideally, the Folder and Context to use if that user has those fields enabled.
Doing this would reduce how much space is needed to have the Reassign button turned on and also solve some of the apparent challenges with reassigning a task and it defaulting to no Folder/Context, brought up else where in the forum.
I ask only that you include the ability to specify the target folder as well.
My co-workers have different names for the same folder, so being able to specify the folder (limited of course to the folders that are shared with me) I'd like to put it in, would be immensity helpful.
This also has the side affect of being able to remove the reassign column, which would also save some horizontal-scrolling screen real estate, which I'm sure any power user could appriciate.
The idea I had in the other thread would be to establish a possible mapping between your folders and the folders shared with you by others. If you establish the mapping, the default folder that would be shown when you reassign the task should be the folder in your collaborators list that's been previously paired with the folder in your list that the task already belongs to.
