How to Activate Sub Task Module

A- A+

With the WordPress Project Manager, you can break down your tasks into subtasks to make things more specific. The WP Project Manager subtask is a pro feature and comes in the form of a module.


To activate the Sub Task Module go to WP Admin Dashboard → Project Manager → Modules → Activate the Sub Task module.

Choose module

Add Sub Tasks

You can add Sub Tasks in two ways:

  1. Selecting a task
  2. Using the Kanban Board

1. Selecting a task

Navigate to WP Admin Dashboard → Project Manager → Select any project you wish to view → click on Task Lists tab.

After clicking on the Task Lists tab, you will see the following screen:

Selecting a task

Now select a task by clicking on a task. For example, let's select the task, “Project Manager old Docs” from here.

Clicking on a task

Now, a modal window will pop up and from this window, you can add subtask.

That's how you can create subtasks by selecting a task and most importantly, you can create unlimited subtasks.

2. Using the Kanban Board

However, you can also add subtasks from the Kanban Board provided that you have activated the Kanban Board module. To add subtasks in the Kanban Board, navigate to board first. After that, click on any task from therein. Here is an example:

In this example, by clicking the “Keyword Research” task we get the window for adding subtasks just like selecting a task of the method 1:

Again, the best part is that you can add as many subtasks as you want.
