Create a parent-child relationship on the Project Task form

You can create a child task from any project task form.

Before you begin

Role required: it_project_manager


  1. Navigate to the parent task in the relationship.
  2. In the Project Tasks related list, click New. The same Project Task form appears for all tasks regardless of the parent-child relationship.
  3. Create the task and click Submit. The newly created task becomes the child task in the relationship.

What to do next

To help remember what the parent of any task is, view the breadcrumb at the top of the Project Task form. It is also helpful to configure the form layout to include the Parent field. You can also change the parent task from this field.
