The Chatter

Chatter is a communication tool that shows the history of a task, including changes and the interactions between you and your customers or colleagues.
To interact with followers, whether there are internal or external, click on Log a note and ping them using the at symbol (@). If you want to send a message/email to all the followers in the task, use Send a message.
You can also ping a channel using the hashtag sign (#). This way, users can have a channel per project team, for example.
