Parallel tasks in Comindware Tracker

Comindware Tracker can be configured to create multiple tasks for each item step.

Note that there is still one primary task linked directly to the corresponding item. Other tasks created in parallel will be subtasks to this primary task and will not be visible in the item.

For example here is a hiring workflow task currently at the ""interviewing"" step which is performed in two phases: HR person interview and hiring manager interview. Instead of creating 2 separate steps or creating one more subtask manually Comindware Tracker can be configured to do this automatically:

This hiring task has a primary subtask created and assigned to HR person - Sandra:

If we go ahead and open Sandra's task we will find one more subtask assigned to the hiring manager - Charles:
