Use nesting to break down larger experiments into smaller pieces of work.

🏢 Available on all plans.

Sub-experiments are a good option when a set of work is too large to be its own experiment but too small to be a project. It's also ideal for splitting up work shared across teammates, since experiments are limited to one assignee.

We treat sub-experiments and their parent experiments as separate entities. A sub-experiment is considered related to its parent, but they do not share properties and do not sum up or aggregate properties. A sub-experiment has its own own status, priority, assignee, tags, due date, etc. that is unrelated to the parent experiment, and vice versa.

Tab C to create a sub-experiment

Cmd/Ctrl Shift P to add a parent

Create sub-experiments

Create sub-experiments directly by opening the parent experiment and then clicking the + sub-experiment button below the experiment Summary. This will launch the sub-experiment editor. You can also use the shortcut Tab C to open the editor.

Turn experiments into sub-experiments

Turn an existing experiment into a sub-experiment by setting its parent experiment. This action is accessible from the three dot menu and ⚡ Quick find.

Turn experiments into parents

To make an existing experiment a parent of another experiment, hover over a sub-experiment and click Set parent in the three dot menu or ⚡ Quick find.

Filter sub-experiments

You can set any list to show or hide sub-experiments in Display options. You can also use Filters to show only top-level (parent) experiments, experiments with sub-experiments, or only sub-experiments. If you use these filters frequently, consider creating a custom View.

Navigate between a parent experiment and its sub-experiment by clicking the folder icon in lists, or below the title in the experiment view.
