Subtasks are useful to split the work of a task.

Each subtask:

  • Can be assigned to a project member
  • Has 1 of 3 different statuses: Todo, In progress, Done
  • Has time tracking information: time spent and time estimated
  • Is ordered by position

  • The timer records the time spent on the subtask automatically. You can also change manually the value of the time spent field when you edit a subtask.
  • The time calculated is rounded to the nearest quarter. This information is recorded in a separate table.
  • The task time spent and time estimated is updated automatically according to the sum of all subtasks.
