How to Create New Tasks and Subtasks

Tasks and Subtasks

Tasks represent the steps you must complete in order to execute your projects. Adding tasks in Instagantt is very easy. Here’s how:

  1. Head over to your project and click the + Add task button. You will then be prompted you create a new task. Confirm the name of the new task by pressing Enter on your keyboard.

  1. Hover your mouse over your timeline and click on a date (or set of dates). You will be prompted to create a new task. Confirm the name of the task by pressing Enter on your keyboard.


Subtasks are detailed extra steps that constitute a task. They are extremely helpful when working with large projects that entail multiple different tasks.

In order to create a subtask, you must first select the parent task. On the task view, you will be able to create as many subtasks as you need.

Keep in mind that by adding Subtasks to a task, it becomes a Parent task (or summary task) and it will, by default, inherit data such as dates from the Subtasks it contains.
