How to create a recurring task with subtasks?


I have a task which needs to be completed every month. The task has sub-tasks, and they need to be completed every time also. If I create them all as recurring tasks, then I see sub-tasks listed twice, once as sub-tasks of the parent task, and once separately. If I delete any one of these two, the other gets deleted also.

How do I make these recurring sub-tasks appear only under the parent task?

Hi there,

The best option would be to not enter a due date for the parent task, and only have dates for the subtasks. This way you'd only see it once.

You can even add a * to the beginning of the parent task name to remove the check box.
