Converting a Subtask to a Task

Table 228. Availability - Legacy plans


Overview

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.

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.

Note

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.
