Tasks Indent

SS

The Indentation has stopped working. I'm facing this on All platforms.
It was a good feature and I need it.

Hello Saud,

I can't reproduce this issue. Please confirm - you're entering a project and within this project as you add or edit a task, you use Ctrl+RightArrow or the icons from the bottom-right corner and neither of them indent the task?

Also, on which platforms did you try it? All 13 platforms we support?


Best regards,
David

On the website, its working fine.
however, on the Desktop App (Windows-7) and the iOS version (iPad and iPhone) there aren't any buttons for Indentation.
Ctrl+RightArrow isn't working either for the Desktop App

Saud,

I still can't reproduce this. I can use Ctrl+RigthArrow on the Windows app. Again, please make sure that you're inside a project and are either editing an existing task or adding a new one using the "+ Add task" link at the bottom. You can't indent tasks on the 7 days view or through the Quick Add feature.

On the iOS app, you can choose an indent level from a drop-down menu when adding or editing a task.


Best regards,
David

I was trying to do it from the 7 day view. You are right. From the 7 days view, the indent doesn't work, otherwise from the project view it does.

Just wanted to know why is that a limitation.

Also, as a suggestion, please change they way indentation works on the iOS app (or maybe i'm using it the wrong way). If I add a task with an indent level, then it becomes a sub-task of the last task in the view. Then I have to drag it up to the task I want. There has to be a better way to adding sub-tasks to a main task.

Thanks and Regards,

Saud

Saud,

It's a limitation because when you use the "Quick Add" option, you can't know where this task will go exactly so you would add a sub-task probably to the bottom of the list and it would become a sub-task of some completely unrelated parent task. While within a project, you can clearly see where exactly will the sub-task be added.

As you've noticed, this is an issue on the iOS where you add a sub-task and it goes to the bottom of the list - that's what would happen if we would allow indenting tasks added through Quick Add.

That said, we will look into implementing an "Add sub-task" option to our iOS app (similarly to our Android app where you can tap on an existing task and choose "Add sub-task" from a menu which will add it to the correct spot).


Best regards,
David
