Add subtasks in Asana's iOS and Android apps «Smartphones :: Gadget Hacks



The Asana mobile app allows you to manage your projects with the same functionality as the website. Most of the features are pretty straightforward, thanks to Asana which maintains the same design elements of the web app. However, one element is very easy to miss: adding subtasks.

Adding subtasks is not as obvious as other Asana functions. To make matters worse, Asana's help pages for its iOS and Android apps are outdated, so using those as a reference won't get you anywhere. Unlike the site, there is no "Add Subtask" button nestled under "Description". Instead, it is hidden behind a button that is often ignored on the website.

Option 1
: Add a subtask to a previously created task

Open a task by selecting one from your list. At first glance, there seems to be nothing for creating subtasks. And Asana's help pages don't help.

Asana's help page for Android says that you need to tap on the pencil icon or use the vertical ellipse dropdown to & # 39; Add a subtask & # 39; select. At the moment, there is no pencil icon and there is no subtask option in the three-dot menu. The iOS help page is similar, with an "Add Sub-Task" option in the ellipse menu and the extended task view.

To add really a subtask to a task that has already been created, select the icon next to the ellipse in the top right corner. The symbol looks like two lines, one curved, with unfilled circles at the end of each line. It's similar to other subtask icons out there, with one important difference: it doesn't show an image for the task itself, making it easy to miss.

The subtask menu appears and you can now add a subtask. After typing the first, tap the enter button on your keyboard to create additional subtasks.

Option 2: Add a Sub-Task to a New Task

If you want to create a new task and add a sub-task to it, the process is much easier. Use the orange floating action button with the plus sign (+) to create a new task. Pull up the modal window to expand it and then select "Sub-Task" (iOS) or "Add Sub-Task" (Android). After typing the first, tap the enter button on your keyboard to create additional subtasks.

You would think you can just tap on one of the subtasks already in a task and then hit the enter button on your keyboard to add another one. However, this is not the case. If you do this, just go to the page for that subtask with more details. Instead, as in option 1, you need to tap the subtask button at the top right to start a new one. After typing the first, you can hit the enter button to add more.
