Create Sublists


Sublist allows you to create your own personal view from the same project.

When you are working with multiple team members on the same project, it’s very likely that after a while, the main List starts to look like a matrix and everyone doesn’t know where to get started.

A Sublist can also help you create a focused view for project members and even the External Team that share the same workload.

Note: The List and the Sublist are mirrored to each other. When you reorder the tasks in a Sublist, the order in the List will also be reordered as well.
