Subtask functionality helps you in creating and organizing tasks by breaking them down into subtasks, making project tracking more manageable. Users can access and manage various features within subtasks, including summary, labels, descriptions, attachments, and more. Additionally, the article explains actions like adding flags, deleting, and converting subtasks to standalone tasks for enhanced control and flexibility.

In this article we will explore the subtasks functionality in task management within KiteSuite.

Subtask

You have the option to add child issues or subtasks to an item. This feature allows you to break down and organize your tasks further, making it easier to manage and track your project’s progress.

Creation of subtask

To create subtasks, you can do it directly from the task details.

Subtask detail

  • Opening Subtasks

    To view a subtask, simply click on it within the task, and it will open up for you

  • ID and Name

    In the subtask, you can find information such as the project name, parent item ID, and the subtask’s own ID.

  • Subtask features

    Accessing features like Summary, Labels, Description, Attachments, Loom, Comments, Activity, Voting, Watchers, Priority, Estimations, Logged Hours, Reporter, Custom Fields, and other features within a subtask is done in the same way as with the parent task.

  • Epic

    Accessing epics within a subtask is similar to the parent task. The only difference is that if you change the epic of a subtask, it will automatically change the epic of the parent item as well.

Other actions

Apart from the basic task management, you have additional actions available for more control:

  • Add Flag You can mark an item with a flag to highlight its importance. Flags are visible to your entire team, and when you share a link to the item, the flag is seen by others too. This helps communicate the significance of the item effectively.

  • Delete Permanently remove the item from your workspace.

  • Convert to Subtask You have the flexibility to turn subtasks into standalone tasks, and they will be placed according to the parent sprint. For instance, if you have “Item1” with a subtask “Subtask1” in the backlog, converting “Subtask1” into an item will keep it in the backlog. However, if “Item1” is part of a sprint, the converted item will appear in that sprint.
