Unlimited Subitems lets you extend the native monday.com information hierarchy by adding as many levels of subitems as you need.

The app creates a visual tree-view that lets you modify and drill down into your extended project structure, so you can accurately reflect how you organize your work on monday.com.

Unlimited Subitems Legacy view

Unlimited Subitems has two views because monday.com has limitations that, for the time being, don't allow subitems migration and hierarchy creation with the old version to the new view. Therefore, by maintaining two views, users don't lose their data but can also start using the latest version.

Main features

  • Accurately reflect your project on monday.com: large projects require tracking at multiple levels. Structure your tasks in their correct hierarchy by adding all the levels of subitems you need.

  • Track multiple assignees, statuses, and timeframes for a single monday.com subtask, as project components often have more than one part. Break down any subtask into child components so you can manage the status, timing, and team members working on each part.

  • See everything at a glance: get a clear and straightforward overview of your extended board hierarchy to identify specific problem areas quickly, understand project component timings, and determine who is working on what.

  • No more workarounds: tired of using checklists on subitems to reflect multiple subitem deliverables? Do it correctly and create individual subitems to capture and track all necessary information.
