Converting a Subtask to a Task

Table 245. Availability - Legacy plans


You can convert a subtask into a task, i.e., if you need to delete the parent task but keep the subtask.

Convert a subtask into a task

Drag and drop from List view:

  1. From List view, open the parent task where the subtask is located.

  2. Click and drag the subtask above or below its parent task until you see a blue line indicating the task's proposed position.

  3. Release your mouse.


List view is not available on accounts created on June 9, 2023, or after this date. We suggest using the Table view instead.

Detach a subtask from a task:

  1. Open your subtask in Task view.

  2. Click the + icon underneath the subtask's name to add it to a folder, project, or space.

  3. Type the name of the location where the subtask should be a task and then select its name when it appears in the drop-down list.

  4. Right-click your subtask in List view.

  5. Select Detach from the drop-down menu that appears.

Your subtask is now a regular task in the folder, project, or space you added it to.


If you don't add your subtask to a folder, project, or space before detaching it, your subtask becomes a regular task in the Shared with me section.
