I'm a little confused on how to add a subtask to an issue in a Next-Gen project. Subtasks are enabled, and I do have the option to add a subtask to an issue in a classic project, but cannot figure it out in a Next-Gen project. Are they not available in Next-Gen/is there some other configuration that needs to be done to enable them?
I apologise for the frustration this is causing. We know subtasks is an important part of your workflow and we are working hard to deliver on the experience as soon as possible.
We're working through the last critical pieces of the features, making sure it all works in a performant way. We should start releasing subtasks to next-gen projects at some point next week if everything goes well. I will update this thread when we do.
For those of you that would like to be part of the first cohort of instances that we enable subtasks on; can you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your hostname (e.g. xx.atlassian.net) in the body and with "Next-gen Subtasks" as the subject? I will subsequently reply to your email at the point we turn on the feature flag for your instance.
Thanks a lot for your patience!
Subtasks are not available yet in next-gen projects. But they are on the roadmap. They will be available later. You can find the roadmap for next-gen projects here:
This is extremely surprising - missing this feature alone caused me to not even start using the Next Generation Projects. Shame - they looked really cool but I can't use them without subtasks.
If you change subtasks to tasks, then you will be able to move your subtasks to a next-gen project. But these subtasks will loose connection to the parent task.
Not a problem if I lose the connection to the parent task because my goal is to have all issues in the next-gen.
How can I change subtask to task in a massive way? Kindly help.
There are some answers from Jira. Estimate in first quarter -
Where are they??? when will they become available? why are we still waiting?
This is the reason people are hesitant to upgrade.. because the stuff they rely upon on a daily basis gets swept out from underneath them.
Sub-tasks even mentioned in next gen project documentation:
It is very confusing and frustrating they are 'in place' but can't be used properly.
Alas, using next-gen project caused our team more pains than gains so far :(
The roadmap has been saying sub-tasks are "coming soon" since October last year. How soon is soon?
If it's going to be another six months before sub-tasks are implemented I will switch back to Classic now.
It just seems Atlassian has gone quiet on what's happening with Next-Gen.
This is cause for concern.
Since I wrote this answer Atlassian has provided a lot more information. We still don't have sub-tasks but we have assurances they are working very hard on getting them out ASAP. I suggest everyone follows this issue: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-17155?focusedCommentId=1923019&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-1923019
+1 - next gen projects without subtasks is blocking us from starting using the next gen projects. I'm surprised Atlassian cannot even provide "jan2019" or at minimum Q1'19 estimate for the arrival. "Coming soon" can mean 'anything'....
This has been "on the roadmap" for over 4 months now... I thought the whole point of using Jira Cloud was that you get more rapid feature updates?
Not being able to break down the cards into more specific working items is infuriating, since not everything is an Epic that needs to go into the roadmap.
We'd be happy with even simpel "checklist" capabilities in the markdown/description, but we don't even get that...
The only way to convert next-gen project to a classic project is to create a classic project and move all issues from the next-gen project to the this classic project.
Need subtasks...... We just set up all of our epics and storys and sub tasks is really important for our workflow. A previous project we are finishing has this capability. Kind of weird that next gen doesn't.
Hi everyone! +10000 for subtasks in next-gen projects
Out team is also suffering without the subtasks. Can be a notification for this feature implementation? As the roadmap of Atlassian doesn't give many insights.
We would readlly appreciate it!
I'm pretty stunned next-gen does not have sub-tasks. This is a feature in the most basic of task management apps. Is there another version of Jira we can use that has a minimum basic feature set for project management? I considering to move away from Atlassian
Also waiting for sub-tasks before Next Gen projects can be used at our end. Really want to start using Next Gen Atlassian, please can we get a move on with this?
can someone from AtlaSSian (jira) employees check on the Trello app they are using the road map for this featuer , i am sure now that you are not using jira for development .???!!! because no answers ??!!!
Hi Atlassian community, My name is Max and I work on the product integration team at Atlassian. I am pleased to announce the early access program for the Jira Cloud add-in for Outlook. This add-in...
