Subtask Inception


Hi All,

Creating a subtask within a task is great.

But I noticed that subtasks can have subtasks, and so on…

That could be come messy. Is there a way to limit or stop creating a subtask within a subtask.




Hi Kam,

There is not currently a way to limit the amount of subtasks that can be created. However your solution could be creating conventions on your team. You and your team could agree upon a convention that you’ll only create one layer of subtasks.

You can read more about conventions here


Asana limits subtasks when you go 6 tasks deep within a project. You can only go 6 layers deep before you reach the subtask limit and are unable to create subtasks within that 7th layer.
