Splitting Tasks is handy if you need to turn a long Task into separate Tasks. Or reallocate some of the Task's responsibilities to other members on your team. If you're in the middle of a long Task and see that you need to make some adjustments, Ganttic’s Split Task feature might be for you. Find out how to use it.
- All Owners, Admins, and Users with Resource Task edit rights can split Tasks.
- The Split Task function literally lets you cut up your Tasks at any point you like. With it, you get two Tasks instead of one. Or even five. Cut them up as much as you need.
- Contrary to Shared Tasks, split Tasks are not interlinked.
- Split Tasks will have identical parameters (Name, Project, Timing parameters and Data Field values). Edit them as you need for each Split Task.
- If you want the exact Split Task to occur at regular intervals - try splitting it up in two for a suitable length and apply the recurrence.
- It is not possible to undo the splits.
Split a Task
- Click on a Task. This will open the Task Edit Dialog.
- Click on the Split Task icon (represented by the scissors). The Split options dialog will open.
- Select the date and time for the split. Only dates and times within the Task's time period will be available.
- Click on Split. This will cut the Task at the date and time you've selected.
- You now have two separate and independent Tasks. Feel free to leave it as two Tasks assigned to the same Resource. Or drag and drop one or both to another Resource.
Splitting Tasks is a convenient way to break up the workload and redistribute it to your team. It's beneficial for keeping the project schedule to plan and keep your team motivated throughout. See some ways that splitting tasks in can improve project management.
