Can you have multiple child issues/sub tasks in one project?

I am trying to create a standard subtask, and then a subtask for specific types of subtasks. Is this possible?

Hi @Jennifer Mun 

Yes this is possible see the instructions at

A subtask is just another issue type apart from it belonging to a parent issue.

Note the special instructions around NOT creating a subtask called subtask. 

Hope this helps 



Thanks @Phill Fox - this is a great overview, but doesn't explain how to have multiple subtask types in next gen.

@Jennifer Mun 

Sorry I should have been clearer in my earlier answer.

There is currently no way to create subtasks whilst continuing in a next-gen project (as of May 2020) but the instructions quoted show how you would convert to a classic project and then how you can set up your subtasks.
