Agent Incident Task Create and Assign an Incident Task



Problem or Question:

How do I create a sub-task in an incident and assign it to another team?



Solution or Answer:

In ServiceNow, there are no subtasks but you can assign a task to another team by creating Incident Tasks.

1. Open your assigned incident in which you want to create a task.


2. Notes – Additional comments: Indicate the reason you are creating a task.



3. Click Save in order to save the comments.
4. Click the Create INC Task button which can be found at the top or bottom of the page. A new window appears with an auto-assigned INCTASK number.

9.   Assigned to: Identify a specific group member only if necessary.
10. Short description: Enter a short description that describes the task you are assigning to the other team.
