Our Relationships feature allows you to relate tasks to each other. Use List view to use Relationships without opening individual tasks!

Who can use it?

Note: You'll only see related tasks that you have permission to access

We'll cover:

When a Custom Relationship is created that is linked to the List where you want to add a Relationship column to a List view, then you'll be able to select it from the available standard fields.
