Subtasks What is a subtask?

A parent task can be split up into a number of tasks which can be assigned and tracked separately in a project. Splitting complex tasks into smaller tasks i,e work breakdown structure often provides a better picture of the overall task progress, and allows each project member involved to better understand what part of the module they are responsible for.
