How can I set a task dependency?

TS

How can I set a task to be dependent on completion of another a task in a different project, i.e. It is not possible to mark the task complete until the task on which it is dependent is marked complete?

Hello,

unfortunately, that's not possible right now, but we may consider adding such feature in the future. You're welcome to add your vote for these requests in our Votebox:
http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/138/
http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/485/

For now, as a workaround, you could set sub-tasks below a task that represents a bigger goal, however, it will be possible to complete the main task anytime which will complete the whole structure, but you'll also be able to check off single sub-tasks.


Best regards,
David

Thank you; this was helpful. I had searched but not found the proposals you referenced, so thank you for that information also.

The votebox is closed, but I would love to see this feature. It's key to anyone using GTD, which sounds like a very large percent of your user base. Thanks!

Add me as well. That would be VERY useful.

The workaround with Subtasks is ok, but one should see in every subtask to which parent task it belongs.
