Create Child Input

An Input's Owner can create a Child Input from the input detail screen.

If your input has a sub-task or sub-process which must be completed before your input, this can be represented in ATC by creating a child input. 

Only an input's owner can create a child input.


Owners can create a child input or assign a new parent input from the input detail screen

  • Start by finding the input you would like to make a child input for, click on the Inputs menu option found at the top right-hand side of the screen.

When an input has a child input it becomes a parent input
