Hello!

I'm new here and trying to mimic a critical feature for my workflow. Is there any way to create parent tasks and sub tasks, each with unique columns? This is something I'm able to do in monday.com, but I really want to use airtable as my PM system 🙂 Here's a pic if it's easier to visualize:

 I searched around and couldn't find it in the community posts, so wanted to check here.

Thanks!

You might want to check to see if Airtable’s List View can give you what you need:

Hey, you certainly can, but would need separate tables for your tasks, and subtasks. 

Your subtask table would need a lookup field in it to link subtasks to it's parent task.  If you wanted the view like that above, you'd have to use the list view, like Scott said above, and use the 'Levels' menu to show Tasks, with linked sub-tasks below.  They can both have unique fields / headers but it's the only way I can think of doing it.
