I want to be able to create sub tasks to a parent task on Trello using Big Picture. However, the way it is displayed in my Gantt Chart is not the same as what I am seeing in tutorials. So far my Gantt Chart looks like the image below:
I would like to have my Gantt Chart look similar to this image below where the subtasks are visible and the grey bar represents the highest level and there are subtasks associated with it:
Taking a look at your screenshot, it appears that the reason why there is no parent-child indication on your Gantt timeline in BigPicture in Trello is caused by the lack of task hierarchy created. In order to be able to see this relation, a task should be indented under parent task. You can actually achieve it in 2 different ways:
- by using the Indent/Outdent buttons in BigPicture
- by manually drag&dropping the tasks on the list
Please kindly refer to the below screenshot, showing both of the mentioned options.
I hope this helps with resolving your problem!
You are very welcome! I am happy that you found my answer useful :)
As for the other question, I am afraid that the answer is no - currently, in order to be able to view and organize the cards in the BigPicture, those must be created on the Trello board beforehand. However, we do have plans for improvements for the BigPicture on Trello, so I believe that one day it will be possible to create a card directly in BigPicture. Please take a look at our roadmap by following the link below. Eventually, those items will be introduced in our product on Trello:
