Subtask inputs

Version 10.6 improves task entry to make entering subtasks more convenient and efficient. You can quickly and conveniently create subtasks for selected tasks through the application menu, context menu, and keyboard shortcuts. Additionally, you have the option to either select the newly added subtask or keep the previously selected task after the subtask is created.

Keyboard shortcuts
  • To create a subtask of the selected task and select the new subtask, press ⌘'
  • To create a subtask of the selected task without changing the selection, press ⇧⌘'
Add subtask to a single task

When you add a subtask to a task that has no children, the basic properties of the selected single task will be copied to the first subtask created. This can save you effort if you want to break down a single task, and it can also help enclose a single task in a task group by creating a subtask with the same properties as the parent task.
