Projects and Subprojects

D

Hello,

I've only just found the Todolist app and I like it so much I'm considering changing over from Things and Omnifocus.

The attached files show a test project I setup. The test project consists of sub-projects which I want to use to store the tasks within the project into separate categories. This all works fine on the mac desktop using the Todolist web app. When I click on test project it displays each of the categories (sub-projects) and the tasks within each section. However, on the iOS app, clicking on the test project displays 'This project is empty' and the tasks are only viewable by individually selecting each category (sub-project) and not as one long list.

Am I missing something here? Or is there another method to achieve what I want to do?

Looking forward to a solution.

Regards
DMW

Hi DMW,

The behaviour you're referring to is indeed not available yet in the iOS app. We're slowly adding more and more web features to the mobile apps and this might be added in the future. For the meantime, you'll have to click each sub-project to see the tasks.

Regards,

Clyde

Wow that was a quick response. Thanks! Love the app and look forward to the new features. I'll add the feature to the Votebox.

It's crazy this feature is not yet on iOS. It makes the whole app pretty unusable for both iPAD and iPhone. The whole point is to be able to select a level 1 project and see all the sub projects and tasks for each at a glance. Having to click on each sub project to see tasks is tedious and saps productivity.

I heard great things about Todoist and joined premium as a result. But I think I jumped the gun on not fully evaluating the state of the iOS app. Combined with the terrible way that sub-projects and tasks are managed even on the Mac desktop app (vs Omnifocus for example), it is really dampening my enthusiasm for continuing. I switched to Todoist for the web and simple collaboration features, but I use subtasks and projects much more every day, so wondering when you guys will get this sorted out on both Mac and iOS?
