Why am I being asked to select the other participant of a conversation??

When you use /todo in Slack with one other person in a direct message, you may be asked to select the other participant in the conversation.

The reason why is because this is considered a private conversation in Slack and Workast cannot see who the other participant is. Therefore, we cannot give the other person access to the task list correctly.

To move forward, you must select the other participant in the conversation so we know who can access the tasks in the space/channel.
