We sent up our Jira to show all marketing activity as one project.
We use epics for our large bucket areas of focus.
We use standards task issues to replay "things that need to be done"
Lastly, we use sub-tasks to break the task down if there are multiple participants that need to be involved in solving the issue.
This works for us as our director wants to see everything in a list view. However,, we can not being sub task to different swim lanes on the Kanban board to show when a subtask is complete or ready for review.
Can we edit the settings of the subtask to make them movable without moving the overall task?
I concur with @Kian Stack Mumo Systems 's answer.
The design of the board for a Work Management project keeps the subtasks grouped with their parent task, in the column that aligns with the parent task status. It does not matter what the status of the subtask is - it will stay grouped with its parent task. It is not possible in this type of project and its built-in board to display the subtasks in a separate column.
If you also have the Jira Software project you could create a separate Agile Kanban board to display the same information, and in that board the subtasks would be displayed in the column that aligns with their status, separate from their parent task. However, a user would need a Jira Software product license to view that board.
@Alexa McCoy, you would need to have Jira Software in your instance to use Epics. If you have that installed, you would need to add Epics to the project Jira Work management, but once you it is in there, it should work.
Why do you want to stick with work management? Is there one of the views that you like?
It's Mary from Planyway for Jira.
While Jira Work Management doesn't support statuses for subtasks, I was thinking about some workarounds I can suggest. Do you guys schedule your activities? If you do, then you may track statuses with the timeline in Planyway as we allow you to visualize subtasks as cards. So, let's say once the card is ready for review, you set date and assign it to a responsible team member. So, visually it'll super comprehensive. Then, once it's done, you can mark it complete, and the card will get crossed right on the timeline. What do you think?
