Changing a Sub-item to Item

  • 1.  Changing a Sub-item to Item

    We have a number of sub-items that we need to increase a level to be stand-alone items. Is there a way to batch the sub-items to move them ?

    Elizabeth:

    You should be able to go into the parent item and click on the "sub-item widget":



    Click this widget (which shows up when an item has sub/child items) and this window will pop up, where you can go to Actions > Convert to.

     


    Elizabeth, will this help you achieve your goals?

    unfortunately that does not work. because the sub-item type is the same as the parent item type, there is no conversion allowed.

    Yes, child items are like that. A little trick: try converting it to another item (anything but a text item, and something which allows you to keep most/all of the fields -you will have to play here) And then convert it again to the actual item you want.
