Subtask's task history view gives you a detailed listing of activity that occurred in your board.

Task history in Subtask

Viewing task history for the whole board

Navigate to task history

Access the task history view via the navigation menu next to the other views in the header.

Navigating the task history view in Subtask

The Board history view is broken down into 5 columns:

  • The time the activity occurred
  • The team member who made the change
  • A short summary of the action
  • A preview of the card the action took place on
  • A description of the change

Subtask's history view makes it easy to see what changed at a glanced. When a value is changed, such as a card's status, you'll see both the old status and the new status that was set. Old or deleted values are shown with faded text and symbols.

Searching task history

You can also use any of the search fields in the header to filter your history to a specific set of tasks. e.g. if you want to view history for all tasks in one column, all tasks assigned to one team member, or all tasks with a certain status, tag, due date, and more.
