Lunatask implements subtasks using checklists in task descriptions. This way, you can give any structure to your subtasks, including nesting them.

To create a subtask, click the checklist icon in the formatting toolbar. Alternatively, type [ ] and a checklist will be created.

To reorder subtasks, click the corresponding icon in the formatting toolbar, or use Alt+Arrow Up / Alt+Arrow Down keyboard shortcuts.



This screenshot is from an older version of Lunatask. The app looks different these days, but the functionality of the feature showcased here is the same.


When creating subtasks for recurring tasks, completing or skipping each occurrence will uncheck all subtasks, so each occurrence gets a fresh start.
