Nested Subtasks provide additional layers to your Hierarchy organization. If you've ever wanted to create subtasks within subtasks, then you're going to love this feature!
When you enable the Nested Subtasks ClickApp, you can select how many layers of nested subtasks you want. The default amount is 3, but you can increase or decrease as needed up to 7 levels!
When the amount of nested layers is reduced in the ClickApp settings, existing nested subtasks beyond that layer will remain in your Workspace. However, people won't be able to create new nested subtasks beyond that layer.
What you'll need
The Nested Subtasks ClickApp is available on all plans.
Workspace owners and admins can enable or disable ClickApps.
Guests with full permissions can create nested subtasks.
Create a nested subtask
To create a nested subtask, click the + icon next to an existing subtask. You can then rearrange it as needed within your task Hierarchy!
Move nested subtasks throughout the Hierarchy
You can move a nested subtask through the Hierarchy in several ways. You can:
Move it to a different subtask.
Move it to another List.
Change its nested layer.
Convert it to a subtask.
Convert it to a task.
Move nested subtasks using drag and drop
Drag and drop tasks, subtasks, or nested subtasks to layer them in the task Hierarchy however you'd like.
Once you've selected the task you'd like to move, a colorful line will appear. This helps visualize exactly where you'll be moving the task to and where it will fall in the Hierarchy.
Move nested subtasks using the task settings menu
You can use your nested subtask's ellipsis ... menu to move it to another task, convert it into a task, or merge it with another task:
Open the nested subtask you want to move.
Click the ellipsis ... menu.
Select Move, Convert to, or Merge.
Note: If you move a nested subtask to a location with different statuses, you will be asked to select a new status from the options available in the new location.
Nested subtasks across views
Visualize all of your nested subtasks by clicking the expand icon when using List view, Board view, Gantt view, and Mind Maps!
Tip: To automatically expand subtasks and nested subtasks in Task views, you will need to show subtasks as separate tasks.
You can also see a task's subtasks and nested subtasks anywhere in your Workspace by opening the task and scrolling down to the To Do section in the lower-left corner of the task modal. You can add, edit, and expand subtasks and nested subtasks from here as well.
When you quick-create a task in List view or create a new subtask from the task modal, hit
tab to indent or
shift+tab to outdent by one level. This allows you to create nested subtasks in as few clicks as possible.
