Splitting Tasks


Introduction

The "Split task" feature is handy if you need to turn a long project into separate tasks. Or reallocate some of the task's responsibilities to other members on your team. If you're in the middle of a big task and see that you need to make some adjustments, "split task" might be for you. Find out how to use it.  

Must-know about this feature

"Split task" literally lets you cut up your tasks at any point you like. With it, you get two tasks instead of one. Or even five. Cut them up as much as you need. Contra to shared tasks, split tasks work as independent tasks. "Split task" is represented by the scissor icon, which you can find in the Task Dialog Window.

    You now have two separate and independent tasks. Feel free to leave it as two tasks assigned to the same resource. Or drag and drop one or both to another resource.
