Create Subtasks

Use subtasks to split up the work of a task into smaller parts. Subtasks function like an independent task that is embedded within a parent task.

Subtasks are not visible in the calendar view, dashboard, or team performance chart. Subtasks are only available inside of the parent task.

Note: Subtasks are available in our Marketing Suite.

Tasks connected to a project:

To add a Subtask to a task, open the Advanced Options of your task.

Inside the task’s advanced options, go to the Subtasksection. To add a subtask, type in the subtask and click [Enter].


Standalone Tasks:

To rearrange subtasks, click . To delete a subtask, click X.


Inside the project task section, a task completion update will appear on any task with subtasks.


If all subtasks are completed, the parent task will not be auto-completed and vice versa. Parent tasks and subtasks completion status are separate to allow more flexibility.
