Subtasks with a twist!

Add due dates and assign your teammates to subtasks

The format of an individual task is the backbone of Kanban-style task management and the entire Workstreams.ai experience. It’s the essential building block for all your taskboards, workflows, and Goals. It is also the first step in successfully executing your ideas and hitting key milestones on your projects. It’s everything!

What's in a task?

Knowing that we’ve done our utmost to refine the Workstreams.ai experience into something that gives our customers the right level of flexibility and granularity needed for all sorts of tasks. Your Workstreams.ai tasks can be precise, title-only snippets or they can be thoroughly filled with detailed descriptions, labels, attachments, and subtasks. That last part, the subtasks, is the area where we have long seen the huge potential for our customers. Here’s why.

How do we think about assigning work

Let’s go a bit deeper into our way of thinking here. At Workstreams.ai, the concept of a task assignee is one where at any given time, a single person is assigned to something. We don’t offer the functionality of multiple assignees, as we believe that in a specific step of the process, a particular person is doing the particular work needed. That doesn’t mean that he or she doesn’t need support in any specific way from others. The ability to assign your teammates to a subtask proved to be the most elegant way forward. The person assigned to the task still retains accountability and responsibility for overall success, but they are now more clearly supported by the teammates assigned to subtasks. It made sense to us, and we are happy to report it also has been met with praise from our customers.
