Sub Items

Jerry O'Sullivan July 14, 2022



We would like to be able to have some sort of Sub items so we can track experiments and MVPs we are trying for big features we are building 

For example we have a feature like integrate with Google Docs.... the fist sub task might be read only integration with Google Sheets...etc?

Is this part of your vision for the product

Hello Jerry, 

We currently do not have different issue types or issue type hierarchy in Jira Product Discovery (mentioned in the post Known limitations), but it is in our roadmap. 

In the meantime, as mentioned by Minesh, the easiest way to track operational chunks of work would be to create Epics and/or issues from the Delivery tab of an idea.
Note that if you don't own Jira Software, hence do not have Software projects template in your site, you could still use Business projects, provided in all Jira sites. When you create a project, you can find them under "Work Management", even if you only have Jira Product Discovery enabled on your site. 

If you need something less formal, you can simply add checkboxes to your idea description in order to list the subsequent tasks to do in this idea - this is more to get a "to-do list" rather than a proper tracking system. 

Finally, Tanguy created a short video on how to create an Opportunity/Solution relationship between ideas. You might be inspired by this workaround for your specific use case.

Using your example, sounds like you have an idea and you want to evaluate if you are on the right track. If that’s the case then we typically run experiments to validate and wait to build it out until we have a level of confidence. 

if you want to track the execution of the idea, the best way I handle it is using epics for each sub-idea and set the priority of those sub-ideas as I see fit. 

adding sub-ideas does not sound intuitive to me.
