Feature Request - For SubTasks

R

It would be great if we can move Sub-Task, just like how we move Main Tasks (By Dragging it across - Both Android and Web).

This will be great for arranging the order of their execution as well moving them to a different Parent task

You guys are doing a wonderful job,

Cheers

Hi Rajeef,

Thank you for the suggestions! We'll look into this when we're making improvements in the Android app. :-)

Hi Rajeef,

No specific timeframe but I'll pas your suggestion to our Android devs so they can consider it. To be honest, there's no guarantee that it will be added but I can try bringing it up so at the very least, there's a discussion about it.

Regards,

Clyde

Hi Rajeef,

Just to make sure I'm understanding you correctly, can you please elaborate the feature request. I have an understanding of it but I just want to be sure. :-)

Regards,

Clyde

Hi Clyde,

Here you go :

Current Feature : I can move the order of Main Tasks by dragging them up and down (both in Web and Android).

Feature Request : At present, Sub-Tasks cannot be moved this way. It would be helpful if Sub-Tasks can also be moved/organized this way since -

- It helps in re-organizing my task flow.
- It helps in moving a Sub-Task from one Parent Task to another Parent Task.

Hope this clears

Cheers,

Rajeef

Hi Rajeef,

Please note that you can actually hold a task and re-order it. Is that what you're looking for?

Clyde

Hi Clyde,

Exactly the feature I'm talking about. But as of now, I'm able to do this only with the Main Task. The feature request is for being able to do this for Sub Tasks also.

Hi Rajeef,

You can tap and hold sub-tasks as well to re-order them. Do you mean to move parent tasks and bring the sub-tasks along with it?

Clyde

Hi Clyde,

I understand that I can move parent task and the sub-task comes along with it. My concern is about moving sub-tasks individually. Strange enough, I just tried "tap and hold sub-task" in my Android app - It works. Yay !! :-)

But what about the web ? Is it my lack of knowledge or isn't it possible yet for web app to "move sub-tasks across" ? (Since I don't see the palm sign coming next to sub-tasks just like how it comes for the parent task).

Hi Rajeef,

Yes, you should be able to move sub-tasks around as well in the web. :-)

Hi Clyde,

I'm 100% positive this time. In web, you can only move around parent task (and yes, sub-task come along with them). But you can't move sub-task alone, just as how we do it in web. Please do give it a try. (Try moving sub task alone up or down or to other parent-task).

Hi Rajeef,

Here's a video I made just for you showing the steps on how to move sub-tasks around:

Let me know if you have additional questions.

Hi Clyde,

I appreciate your effort to make the video. And everything seems to be doing pretty good in the video.

I have figured out the problem. - The indent and "moving sub task around" option is available only when the tasks are available in the inbox or any of the Project folders. I was unable to move them around when I was accessing them from the "Today" dashboard ( Try it out for urself ;-) )

I think we have sorted this out. And It would be asking for too much if I will be requesting you to make those options available in the Today dashboard also.

Thanks for the patience all along,

Cheers
