Creating Subtasks

List View

For a task that does not yet have an existing subtask, you can create one by hovering over the task and selecting the icon below!

Board View

You’ll see this same icon appear when hovering over a task without subtasks in Board View:

How to show subtasks as separate items

Click on the subtask icon in the upper right corner of your screen: 

  • “On- under parents” will expand subtasks directly beneath their parent tasks
  • “On- stand alone” will display subtasks as separate items from their parents
  • “Off (default)” will hide your subtasks from view, but you can always click on the subtask icon to expand them in place

You can use the Multitask Toolbar in Board View as well! Either:

  • Hover over a task and click the dot that appears to select it
  • Click on the ellipses at the top of a column and choose “select all” to select all tasks and subtasks in the column
