We have a business project where we can create sub-tasks within an issue.
For our Scrum projects we now want to add this as well. I've added the Sub-Task type to the corresponding Issue-Type screen. If I am then at the issue and want to create a sub-task there, I am not given this option.
Which step did I forget?
Running through the steps - this is one way to activate sub-tasks if they're not there by default:
^ This should add sub-tasks to that scheme, impacting that project and any other project using the scheme. Remember you can only create sub-tasks from within a Story using the 3-dot options button not through the main "Create" button.
Another thing to remember is if you were viewing an issue on that project prior to the changes, refresh the page before trying to add a sub-task.
Let us know if these steps don't resolve the issue :)
Hi, for some reason this isn't working for me. I can get to the Issue Types but there's no Edit issue types in the menu. There is Add Issue Type but that will only let you create a custom issue type.
The scheme the project uses has Sub-tasks enabled, I just can't seem to find a way of adding that issue type to the project. Only thing I can think is this answer isn't for next-gen projects?
This is for classic projects - for Next-Gen, sub-tasks should be active by default.
To add a sub-task to a story:
Let me know if you run into any issues :)
Not a problem - there can be a little bit of learning curve moving from classic > new.
I've found the best way to learn is to create a "test" project and simply - click everything. It means you can try all the new functionality as it is released and see how it differs to your previous experience!
