Nested Label

I would love if we had the ability to nest labels in the same way we are able to nest projects/tasks.

This would allow me to create different groups of labels that are related.

EX labels:

@Contexts (I set these all to one color)
----- @Home
----- @Work
----- @Errands
----- @Phone

@People (I set these all to another color)
----- @Person A
----- @Person B
----- @Person C

Currently labels are useful for search but don't really help me with organizing tasks across different projects. Glancing at the list of unorganized labels is overwhelming.

I would also like the nested labels in the same way when looking at the list on mobile devices.

Has anybody at Todoist seen or acknowledged this request? It is essentially the same as proposal 387 (https://en.todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/387/) and I for one would be very keen to see this implemented. That way I could replicate the nested tags I have setup in Evernote, taking me one-step closer to the fully integrated Evernote (to note and store stuff) / Todoist (to manage my tasks) solution I yearn for...

Hello Patrick,

We read every single reply in every Votebox suggestion :)

Right now, you can add tasks and sub-tasks to projects and sub-projects on 3 or 4 indent levels. We may consider allowing indenting labels in the future.

Best regards,

I'm coming from Omnifocus and I really miss this feature.

Agreed! Evernote, omni focus, and others do this.
ToDoist is the best without this feature, would be one more reason why it is the best.
