It would be good if we are able to create a subtask to an existing task.
Thank you for the feedback!
As an update, we’d like to pursue improvements to the checklist functionality in Planner, but don’t have any near-term plans.
If you’d like to vote on task dependencies/linking/referencing, please head over here: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525/suggestions/13976094
We will keep you updated when there are any changes. Keep the votes coming and comments coming!

Sub-tasks and assignees for each task and each individual sub-task are a must-have.
H Brown commented
I see this is very old request, please consider to add subtasks which can be assigned to individuals.
Alex Jones commented
agree, it would be perfect to work with sub tasks. I try to use it for my project https://onlinecasinos-australia.com/ but it is still not so awesome as could be. Waiting for more benefits.
Checklists don't satisfy the requirement. If I have a task assigned to multiple people but that can only be considered complete when everyone has completed their part, I don't want any individual to have the power to mark the task as a whole complete whilst others remain outstanding. That's what subtasks are for. Fairly basic requirement and one I would suggest would bring far more benefit than some of the things you've delivered recently
Please add this feature!
Without the ability to create sub-tasks in Planner, people are moving to Jira. Please, please work on adding this functionality.

I was very kind this year with my colleagues, could you please add this feature for Christmas ?

You devoted all your time and efforts to develop and perfect this product or service or service and you are now ready to share it to the world.
Planner is useless without subtasks! This was requested more than 4 years ago - at what point will you make your customers a priority? I'm sure Atlassian appreciates your lack of service. Way to go, MS!!

Sub task, with person assignment, start, end and status. Like main task.
Christoph Peter commented
Please add subtasks
We need that too! Would be very helpful!
Rysic Rychu commented
It would be very helpfull
This would help Planner compete with more comprehensive solutions like Monday.com if we could assign subtasks/checklist items to users AND assign dates.
Just curious, at what vote count, will developers add the functionality requested. The request for subtask as 5,679 votes. At some point it should be evidently clear that is something that needs to be added. Just saying.
Pls focus harder on this one along with the ability to assign sub tasks to team member(s). This is a deal breaker missing functionality that our employees need. Since it’s not there they choose other applications. Once they start using something else it’s very hard to get them to use Planner. This is a missing part of full O365 suite adoption as many dont need Project ( plus it’s additional costs).

This cool and i agree with that 100%
hoping we can get sub tasks - herese my vote
your MS PLANNER is nice but only 50% of worth if you don´t have the chance to SUBTASKS. Only Level under KANBAN is muh too less.
Please consider this tremendous demand in your priority list for updates.
It is necessary for a realistic task planning to have in minimum one (better 2 or 3) additional levels in which you can split your Tasks under a higher categories. Hereby it´s necessary to have also the chance to combine files and due dates etc. …
