Creating a Subtask

Table 233. Availability - Legacy plans


All users except collaborators can create subtasks.

Create a subtask

  2. Click the Add subtask button (or click the subtask icon and then + Item if there are existing subtasks) from the Task view panel.

  3. Type a name for your subtask.

  4. Press Enter on your keyboard.

Your subtask is instantly created and you can click it to open and edit. A link to the subtask's parent task is located immediately above the subtask's title in Task view.
