Sections can be used to group similar work items inside your Feature together to provide your team with more context.


Once inside your Feature, you can start adding work items:

  • To change an item’s type, right click on the item and select which type you would like to change to.
  • Hit [ Tab ] to turn any item into a Subtask.

Keyboard Shortcuts:

  • Turn any item into a task by typing - at the beginning of an item.
  • Toggle between item types using Ctrl + Shift + S (or Cmd + Shift + S if you use a Mac).
  • Add a Section to group similar items together by typing * at the beginning of an item.

If you’re not working on a feature, you can add your items inside the project’s List and add assignees, due dates, statuses, and estimate to start tracking them.
