Creating subtasks on iPhone more cumbersome


I'm not sure when the behavior changed but, at least, in version 6.0.3 of the iPhone app, I've noticed that process of creating a subtask is more cumbersome than before.

Now, when adding a task, one has to perform the added step of clicking on 'More options' , then 'Sub-task' before one can select the indentation level.

IMO, it would be easier to provide a button that, when repeatedly pushed, will cycle all the indentation levels. Alternatively, provide 5, mutually-exclusive butons for all the possible indentation levels. Clicking through so many levels to perform a common action is too much work.

Hi Steven,

Thanks for the suggestion. We indeed did change this in the recent updates to provide more options within the app and the creation area, but trying to keep it minimal at the same time.

Of course this can come at a cost depending on the situation and how each user uses it. We might consider changing this in future updates.
