Timeline - Schedule Subtasks



I’ve been an avid Instagantt user in conjunction with Asana for several months now. I was really excited for Timeline but I’m left underwhelmed.
Along with other feedback posted, a huge gap in proceeding with Timeline is the lack of ability to schedule (or even see!) Subtasks.
The ability to schedule subtasks is key the the ability to properly manage a project, as those “little” things add up and can impact the whole schedule. Without this feature, we can’t even begin to use Timeline.
Our current workaround…continue to use Instagantt while Asana Timeline further improves.


In agreement. I really like the Timeline / Gantt Chart feature, but without the ability to utilize Subtasks, I’ve had to completely restructure our projects and drag and drop each of the Subtasks to become Tasks so they’ll show up on the timeline…
Please, developers, bring this feature online immediately, as it’s otherwise making more work for us who already appreciate and utilize the great features of Asana’s subtask organization.


The more and more I use Asana, the less and less I use subtasks… They just don’t jive with the rest of the product. They don’t display their project badges in the My Tasks view, and I find this really irritating. I try to avoid subs wherever I can.


Nevertheless you need them sometimes. And when you need them you have to see them. So why not making Tasks in the Timeline unfoldable, so you can see the Subtasks underneath the Task if you want?


The ability to accordion the sub-tasks would be great. I understand the clutter sub-tasks could create, but if you have the ability to expand, or close sub-tasks, that would all drill-down.

Very odd to see the timeline with a task that is dependent on a sub-task but that is not visualized.


You can get around this by adding subtasks to the project itself. They will appear on the timeline and will also appear nicely nested under the master task.


Dear Nicole, when you talk about adding subtasks to the project itself, you may say like a task? or there is another way to do that


Any update on this topic? It would be very cool if we can see sub-task in the time line.
Thank you
