Sub projects not shown

To maintain a good overview, I use top level projects (like folders), with sub projects (folders) underneath. When using the web version of todoist, when i click on a top level project, it lists all of the tasks below that top level project, sorted in sub projects. On the mobile android app the list shows empty, when i choose a top level project, which defeats the purpose of having a hierachy of projects / folders. Why is that?

Hi Michel,

Which android device are you using, which version of the OS? On the Android version, there will be an arrow on the right side of the Project, which will expand any sub-projects. Are you saying when you do this nothing shows up?

Please try clearing the data for the app (Android Settings, Applications).

Hi @Brendon,

I also have the same problem.

I saw the arrow and the sub-folders on the right side, but the problem is when I click to show the root folder, it is not showing the sub-project´s tasks as it happens in the web version.

I attached the view of web that not work in Android.

When I click in "Freelances" on the web, it shows at left the tasks of each of sub-project. And in Android it shows only the root (Freelances) tasks.

This simply does not work on mobile at this time. We will look into adding it in future updates. It will only show the project you click on.
