Sometimes, you need to monitor items in the workspace that you do not own. You might need updates on a colleague’s task that is related to the work you’re doing.

If you’d like to receive recent change notifications for a plan item that you do not own, you can follow it. No one else can see which items you’ve chosen to follow.
- You can follow individual tasks or entire containers (projects, sub-folders or packages).
