Printing subtasks

B

I am new at Todoist. Love it so far. Was just a bit surprised when I printed my todo-list, the subtask doesn't show up on print. Could you fix that or am I doing something wrong? Best regards, Bo

Hello Bo,

sub-task should be printed along with all other tasks. Please tell me:
- From which view are you trying to print your tasks (project view or search result page, if so - what's the search query you're using)?
- Which browser are you using?
- Does this issue also occur in a different browser?
- Are you accessing Todoist directly through the website or through a plugin (if so - which one)?


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

I have tried from Safari/Firefox/Chrome, but the result is the same.
I'm printing from the search result page, query '7 days, overdue' or 'tomorrow' or 'today'.
I'm accessing Todoist directly from the website.

When I print in project mode I don't have the problem that subtasks are not printed. But I work at multiple projects at the same time, so it would be most helpful if I could print per day/week.

Hope you can help me with this one.
Thanx in advance.

Best regards,
Bo

Hi David,

I think I see what is happening. I didn't give the subtasks any date, because they are connected to the main task. If I do however.
The subtasks are printed as a main task, so no indenting (all tasks are at the same level, all totally to the left).
Since I work with a lot of subtask and subsubtasks that can be a bit confusing. Could this be helped? With the project view I don't have this problem.

Hope you can help and thanx for your quick response on my question earlier, that is really great service!

Best regards,
Bo

Bo,

indeed, it's not possible to showcase sub-tasks when trying to print a search result of a query defined by time. The "today", "7 days" and similar views are showing all tasks due by the queried date regardless of their indent level and with collapsed sub-tasks if they are parent tasks. Sorry for the inconvenience.

For now, as a workaround, you could print a "va" (or "viewall") view of all tasks across projects which would include sub-tasks and tasks without due date.


Best regards,
David
