During Teamwork Projects’ 12 Days of Features, we’re delivering a brand new feature every day to help you improve your productivity into the new year and beyond.

On the second day of Christmas, Teamwork gave to me… a new trigger to automatically add subtasks in Board View! We know how important it is to keep your workflow as streamlined and simple as possible. That’s why today’s feature is a new trigger for Board View that allows you to automatically add subtasks! Now, when you move a card into a column, you can set up a trigger that allows you to add subtasks — either from a standard list you create manually or from an existing task list template.


Combining this trigger with your task list templates will mean much more automation for your workflow. Let’s say you’re using Board View to plan your content calendar, and each card represents a piece of content. When you move a finished blog post to the column labeled “Complete,” any subtask list of actions that you created would automatically be populated, such as:

  • Upload to WordPress

  • Share on social media

  • Send out email

Note: This feature is available on all paid plans. To learn more about using triggers in Board View to automatically add subtasks, check out this help doc. If you have any questions, just send a mail to support@teamwork.com and we’ll be happy to help. As promised, we’ll be announcing a new feature every day during our 12 Days of Features, so make sure to check back here tomorrow.
