Sub-Task Board View

Currently, you can't see Sub-Tasks split out at the "Board" view. They are rolled up into the parent task. The reasoning I was given is that subtasks don't live in the space or project they are created, but rather within the task itself and they are given a "ghost tag" to help you identify where the parent task is.

 The work around provided to me by Wrike is to go in and tag the space/project and it will show up then. While this works, it isn't convenient and adds (what I believe to be) unnecessary steps. Based on my experience with other similar project management boards, tasks and sub tasks are visible on the board automatically and you can filter out tasks from sub tasks if you want to just see one or the other.

I see little to any need to use "ghost tags" to fulfill this need. We should be able to see all tasks and sub tasks on a board to better understand where ALL tasks are in the workflow. We shouldn't have to jump through hoops to make this happen.

I'm liking this feature proposal!

Indeed, when we want to divide the work of a larger task into multiple tasks & assign each task to the right person, it's now completely unclear what the status is of each task in the board itself.

Why have a board overview, when you have to open each task-with-subtask to see if anything is being blocked, assigned to me, ready for testing etc?

I tried the workaround, and the subtasks show up in the board, but with no text or link for one to understand that it is a subtasks...  and the original parent task is still shown containing 4 subtasks... quoite annoying and unfriendly.

the subtasks of a task should be possible to see (and hide) in board view by "expanding" or similar (like in list view)

Hi Tomas Bäckman, may I ask if you've had the chance to try the new Board view? It gives you the opportunity to hide and expand the subtasks. You can find more information about it here. Please let me know if it helps🙋🏻‍♀️

Just following up on this... is there a timeline for adding the function to "expand sub-tasks" on the board? For an example of how it works, I found Clickup does it.... but, the software is a little glitchy compared to Wrike. So, I'd hold off implementing if Wrike is on it and there is a timeline.

I have tried the new board and even though i can see the subtask I cannot track the subtask independently, if i move one subtask to "completed" the parent task and all move to "complete".  I am treating the task as a business requirement with the subtasks as the way to complete them and assign different people to accomplice the subtasks and want to track their progress independently.  If I raise the requirements to a project level I cannot set a priority between requirements (unless I am missing something).  End-of-the-day please add this!!!!!!!!!

Any update to be able to track sub-tasks independently in the board view?
Would be great to be able to have the option to break out sub-tasks to separate tasks in the board view.

Hi Juan,

Thank you for the feedback. But boards (e.g. Kanban) and dashboard are two different things?

Kind regards,
Sarah

Hi Sarah Ekstrand! They are different, and Juan mentioned new dashboards because it's possible to see subtasks separately there, and we are wondering whether using the dashboards instead of the board view could work for you 🙂

Hi Sarah,
I would appreciate it if I could see the subtasks in the board view. As I am planning several projects in the space and would like to use the board in each project seperately. The dashboard relates to the entire space, so it is not possible to provide each project its own Kanban list. The parent task restricts me in the processing of tasks, as I have the subtasks in different statuses
Kind regards
Lucas

Hi Lucas Linek, welcome to the Community! When creating a New Dashboard, you can choose the data source to be a project of folder, instead of the whole Space:

I hope this helps!

Having the same problem - could you provide timeline for when it will be possible to expand subtasks in board?

Hi Trine Norris, welcome to the Community! Thank you for voicing your interest in this suggestion, please feel free to upvote it, in case you haven't yet. You can check how we process feedback in this article

I'm afraid that this idea is a bit far from the 60 votes threshold to receive a public status, let hope more users will continue adding their votes for this one 🤞 Although we don't have updates on this feature at the moment, I'd like to mention that you can use New Dashboards and select the flat list mode to see subtasks separated from their parent task.

Lastly, please feel free to check our  New to Community forum post to get the most out of your experience in our Community 🙂
