Sub Task

With the WordPress Project Manager, you can break down your tasks into subtasks to make things more specific. It is a pro feature and comes in the form of a module.


To activate the Sub Task Module go to WP Admin Dashboard → Project Manager → Modules → Activate the Sub Task module.

Add Sub Tasks

You can add Sub Tasks in three ways:

  1. Using the (+) icon 
  2. Selecting a task
  3. Using the Kanban Board

1. Using the (+) icon

Navigate to WP Admin Dashboard → Project Manager → Select any project you wish to view → click on Task Lists tab.

After clicking on the Task Lists tab, you will see the following screen:

You need to click on any of the (+) icon marked by the red arrows to create subtasks:

When you click on the plus(+) icon you will get the options like Subtask title, Subtask details, Due Date, Select User to create subtasks:

After filling out the fields with necessary data hit the “New subtask” button to save the subtask you created just now.

2. Selecting a task

If you select a task you will also be able to create subtasks for that particular task. For example, if you click on the task “Prepare docs on how to delete contacts” to select it:

A new window will pop up with a view to adding subtasks:

Hit the “New sub task” button as indicated by the red arrow to get the options for creating subtasks.

After filling out the form click on the “New sub task” button from below to save the subtask.

3. Using the Kanban Board

However, you can also add subtasks from the Kanban Board provided that you have activated the Kanban Board module. To add subtasks in the Kanban Board, navigate to a  board first. After that, click on any task from therein. Here is an example:

In this example, by clicking the “How customer satisfaction can be achieved using CRM tools” task we get the window for adding subtasks just like clicking on the (+) icon of the method 2:

The best part is that you can add as many subtasks as you want.
