Using Sub-tasks / Sub-items in Anywhere
Breaking down tasks into manageable pieces is crucial for effective project management. That's where sub-tasks come into play. They allow you to decompose a larger task into smaller, actionable items, ensuring that every detail is addressed.

How to Use Sub-tasks:

Initiate Sub-tasks:
Navigate to the Table view.
Hover over the task you want to break down.
Click on the 'Sub Items' icon on the task.

Create on this icon to expand the Task & create sub tasks

Add Sub-tasks:
A new row will appear beneath the main task.
Enter the details of the sub-task in this row.
Continue adding as many sub-tasks as necessary.

Create sub tasks

Monitor Sub-tasks:
Tasks with sub-tasks will display a count indicating the number of sub-tasks associated with them.

Additional Information:
Movement: If you move a parent task to a different group, its sub-tasks will automatically move with it.
Functionality: Sub-tasks operate similarly to regular tasks. You can edit, delete, archive, duplicate, comment, and upload files to them just as you would with a primary task.
Restrictions: While you can rearrange the order of sub-tasks within their parent task, you cannot move a sub-task to a different parent.

Sub-tasks are a powerful tool to ensure that every aspect of a task is addressed. By breaking tasks down into smaller components, teams can ensure that nothing is overlooked and that every detail is managed efficiently.
