Task level

R

When I create a task with a level one, I get the task under the original and also the same task listed in the main list. Is the correct functionality or am I doing something incorrectly?

Thanks
Richard

Hello Richard,

Assuming that you're referring to the 7 days view - that's the correct behavior for this view. It shows all tasks that match the criteria "are due within 7 days" regardless of their indent level. On top of that, you have the option to see what sub-tasks a parent task contains by expanding it. If both match the criteria - that's where you'll see the related sub-task again.

This is the best way we could find to make sure you won't miss any important tasks if they're sub-tasks and match the criteria and at the same time won't display unrelated parent tasks that don't meet the search criteria just because one of their sub-tasks does.


Best regards,
David

Is there anyway that I can set it up so that I can view the subtasks only as a list?

Richard,

That's not possible. Even if it was, it would mean that when you search for "today", you would see tasks that are not even due today, just because they may have a sub-task due today which you have to find on this list.

On the other hand, removing the option to view sub-tasks of a parent task would mean that you'd have to go back and forth between projects just to check what sub-tasks it has.


Best regards,
David

Ok, well it would be nice to have sub tasks that I only see when I open the
sub task list.
