Hi,

You can change a level of a sub-task by editing it and tapping on "Sub-task" and selecting one of the 4 levels available.

Regards,

Clyde

when i edit it there is no option to tap on subtasks. Also, is it possible
to ad a subtask while I am adding in a main task or do i have to finish the
subtask and then tap on it before i can ad a subtask?

Hello Gavriel,

There is an option to set the sub-task level of a task when you're editing it and there is also such option when you're adding the task, but you have to tap on "More" to reveal these options.

You can also tap on an existing task and choose "Add sub-task" from the menu in the bottom-right corner.


Best regards,
David

but is there an option to ad a task and a subtask at one shot without first
closing the task?

Hi,

Yes, as David said, click on More when creating a task to get the option to change its indent level.

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi,

That is how sub-tasks work. You can then click and hold to drag it where you'd like it to go. Then whichever task is above it becomes its parent.

Brendon.

You're not understanding me. I want to type in: 'chickens' , subtask, 'cook
them' , subtask 'eat them' all at one shot without having to close then
open a task. How do I do that?

Hi,

If you want to type into the task name to set the indent level (sub-task) then this is not possible at this time. Each task is looked at as its own, and only the indent level really says if its related to another task or not.

We will look into improving this in the future,.

Regards,
Brendon.

Thank you. Now it seems like I am unable to put a picture in a note and
instead of it asking for a note it asked for a comment. What's wrong?

Hi,

Notes & Comments are the same. If a project is shared, they become comments, if its personal, they are called notes. Though the features are the same.

Brendon.

Hello,

Do you get an error when you try to attach a picture? You have several options to add a picture. Do you get a problem when you're any of them? (Ex: File, Take a photo, Record audio, Dropbox, and Google Drive)
