Subticket/SubIssue Feature

Added by Matthias Hahn over 11 years ago

Hi,

does anyone know something if it´s possible (or will be possible) to create SubIssues oder Subticket from a Ticket or Issue?

I know the feature with the related issues, but there is nothing like "is child of... " or better: "Create subticket of" :-)

Thanks for comments

We were just talking about wanting this on a team meeting this morning. Tasks (issues) can have relationships of "blocks" and "precedes", but these terms are rather confusing also.

While we are at it, we should probably change the wording of "Issues" to "Tasks" or "Tickets" since issue lists often times include "Features", "Support Tasks", "Setup Tasks", etc.

:-) do you work in my company?
But you are right. It becomes complicated when we think about it.
...link the "progress". Does one ticket finishes the parent-ticket for 50% if there are 2 subtickets?
And so on. These issue model will grow :-)

But I go on think about it.

I'm +1000 on this feature. :-)

I have not yet found a way to group (sub)tasks that belong to a larger project as naturally as in, e.g., mantisbt.
In mantis it's really easy:

1. Create ticket-1 (the parent), for example: "Build a Website"
2. Create ticket-2 and set relation to "Child of ##1", e.g: "Create HTML code"
3. Create ticket-3 and set relation to "Child of ##1", e.g: "Create Graphics"

Now the fun part is:

1. Ticket-1 can not be closed before ticket-2 and ticket-3 are closed.
2. Updates to the status (percentage-done) of ticket-2 or ticket-3 are automatically reflected in ticket-1.

I think this is a very natural way to deal with subtasks which are too small to deserve a real subproject (in redmine-speak).
Consequently I would love if that could be implemented in redmine...

Also see my comments on Ticket #952.

+1 very useful idea, redmine will replace MS Project if you will do it.

There is a discussion of integrating it into the core of redmine. Please vote for that feature.
