View parent task from subtask
I typically use the Today view or the 7 Days view, but I also use a lot of subtasks. The problem is that the subtasks appear in these views without any context to their parent task. For example, say I have a task to "Prepare for trip to LA" and I have a subtask of "Book flight". When viewing the Today view, I only see the "Book flight" task. There is also no way to navigate to the parent task from the "Book flight" task. This can be a problem if I have two trips I'm preparing for. When I see "Book flight", I don't know if that's for my LA trip or for my NY trip.
Currently, I use tags to identify what parent task subtasks belong to. But this is tedious because then I have to tag every subtask I create. I could also make the parent task a project instead, but then I don't have the ability to assign a deadline.
It would be nice to be able to see the parent task of a subtask from any view. Maybe if you hovered your mouse over it, it would should the parent task. Or, maybe the parent task could appear in gray above it.
