Subtasks - Assigned to Projects


When sorting my task list by project, all of my sub-tasks show up under “No Project” even though they are created under a task in a specific project.

Steps to reproduce:
-Create Sub-task in project
-Navigate to My List
-Sort by Project
-Subtask show up under “No Project”

Browser version: Google Chrome is up to date

This is expected behavior for Subtasks.

By default a Subtask doesn’t belong to any Project. You are able to add a Subtask to Project after it is created. (You can add a Subtask to a Project, in the same way you add a Task to a Project.)

You aren’t the only user that has issues with this behavior.
Here is a topic where you can vote for Subtasks to be automatically added to a Project.



How can i set a subtask to a project? It’s very strange to me that it wouldn’t be included within the Task’s Project. Knowing that, i need to at least be able to assign it to a Project. Is this possible?



Hi @Dan_Durusky, You can add a subtask to a project as follows (but you first have to click the subtask’s far-right thought+arrow icon:

The Add to Project command is also found in the subtask’s More Actions menu.

Hope that helps,
