Subtasks add an additional level of organization to your ClickUp Workspace , allowing you to create more detailed goals or smaller to-do items as part of a task. When a subtask is added, we refer to the original task as the parent task.
Just like tasks, you can add detailed information like assignees, due dates, and priorities to subtasks.
You can create subtasks wherever a parent task exists.
To create a subtask:
You can also create subtasks using the Create subtask icon found on tasks.
You can display all subtasks under a parent task in a List, Board, or Box view. Find the Subtasks button in the upper right corner of your Workspace and choose a display option:
Nested Subtasks provide an additional layer of organization by giving you the ability to create subtasks within subtasks. I do not recommend going further than three layers of Subtasks deep, but ClickUp does give you the availability to organize seven layers of subtasks. You can select how many layers you want within the Nested Subtasks ClickApp.
To create a nested subtask, click the + icon next to an existing subtask. You can then rearrange it as needed.

ClickApps are ClickUp features that customize your team’s Workspace experience. You can enable one or more features to create the perfect workflow for you and your team.
When you change a parent task’s due date, you are able to automatically change its subtask due dates. For example, if you change a parent task due date from October 1 to October 6, that is a change of five days, so you will also increase all subtask due dates by 5 days. Be sure you go into ClickApps, and turn on Remap Subtasks Due Dates ClickApp is enabled.
With this ClickApp, you can send and receive emails directly within a task, without ever leaving ClickUp! Replies will funnel into the same task thread. Easily switch between sending a comment to teammates and sending an email to anyone outside of ClickUp.
