Introducing Advanced SubtasksJesse HerlitzLast Updated: April 27, 2017
Spring is here, and with it, something many of you asked for: Fully-featured subtasks in Flow.
Tasks have always been at the heart of Flow, and our users certainly know how to get stuff done. You folks have completed over 10 million tasks!
We know that clear tasks are also at the heart of good project management. So, after giving you better tools to plan projects, we set out to make tasks in Flow even better.
Today’s update gives subtasks superpowers: Transforming them from simple to do lists to fully-featured tasks with their own assignees, due dates, and comments.
Advanced subtasks make top-down project planning and high-level outlining in Flow easier than ever.
Here’s what’s new:
💁 Assign Subtasks
📅 Set Subtask Due Dates
💬 Comment on Subtasks
↕️ Drag a task onto another task to make it a subtask (list view, task pane, and column view)
🔔 Subtask notifications, including redesigned email notifications.
📡 Subtask subscriptions mirror parent task subscriptions, but this can be overridden.
🏷 Subtask tags mirror parent task tags, but can be overridden.
We also added a few neat tricks:
- When you’re punching out tasks in the task list, use shift-return rather than the usual return to create the task, and you’ll enter inline subtask creation mode. Get wild.
- If you’d like to add a subtask to a task in the list or column view, hover over the task and click the little ‘Add Subtask’ icon.
All these task goodies are available today to all Flow users, for free. Check out the video above to see subtasks in action, or log into Flow and get cracking.
