Subitem-only cards in Kanban View

+1 The lack of this feature makes Kanban useless for our board structure. My team keeps actionable tasks with statuses at the sub-task level meaning that there is no status to parse on main-level items and, even if there was, it would not be our preferred approach.

Great that this exists but it’s not what most of us need. We need the subitems to show as individual cards themselves (as well as the main task). Like they do in the calendar view.

At present, the only way I can make use of the Kanban screen is to have the project table full of the subitems and not nest them under the main item.

Hope that makes sense.

Also looking for this feature. I need the ability to see the subitems in a kanban view.

It’s not a Kanban view but I’ve fund the next best thing is using the “My Work” section (link on the top left hand side menu). This at least shows all my items and subitems in a to-do list and it’s pretty easy to update the status from there.

Might be useful for others too.

The most frustrating part is that in Kanban you can’t even open the item card and access the sub items that way.

Hey Folks,

Super stoked to announce the beta of Multi board kanban view. Our team would really appreciate it if you could try it out and share your feedback. The beta version will be available until our app is listed on the marketplace.

This also shows subitems as separate cards ( as long as they have similar status labels )

To share your feedback, use the live chat in the app, write to me at, or leave a comment on this forum

As a thank you for trying it out and sharing your feedback

  • You’ll get a 20% off, once this app is listed on the marketplace
  • We’ll prioritize any feature requests

Hi all :slight_smile:

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our Kanbanify app in the marketplace!

Kanbanify streamlines your workflow by connecting multiple boards to one powerful Kanban view where you can add filters to prioritize your/your teams work and stay focused. You can also combine subitems as separate cards in one Kanban view.

There is also a free plan to get you started!

This is just the beginning! We’re constantly adding new features based on your feedback. Let us know what you think and suggest features you’d love to see!

Thank you,

Hi community! I just spoke with our product team about adding subitem-only cards in Kanban view. We provided the ability to view subitems in kanban and at the moment we are not planning to add subitem-only kanban since we are prioritizing other features at the moment.

While we do not have this feature on the roadmap, as mentioned in the comments below, there are monday apps may help with your use case.

Every quarter, the Product team need to make difficult decisions about how to prioritize building new features, improving old ones, and ensuring overall platform quality.

Although we do not have this feature on the roadmap at the moment, our roadmap is subject to change due to evolving capabilities and capacity, so we may be able to add this feature into our future roadmap. We will update you with any changes to this status.

Hi Juliette, just letting you know it is possible to create a subitem-only kanban view by using the app Same Item Multiple Boards .

You can simply add your subitems as regular items on another board and set a Kanban view.
