Label viewing subtasks web Vs iOS


In the web interface when viewing all tasks with a specific label, those tasks with subtasks have a triangle to the left allowing you to expand the task to see all subtasks.
On iOS this expansion is not possible.

Please advise.

Hi Chris,

Can you send a screenshot of the issue to brendon@doist.io and david@doist.io? As expanding of sub-tasks are possible on IOS, but the icon for this is not the same, and may be less noticeable to some users.

I am facing the same issue as well.
I have sent an email to aforementioned email IDs for your kind assistance in this regard.

Hi Yasir,

In your example, your sub-tasks are all completed items. And at the moment completed items are not shown on the mobile version. We will add this ability in the future.

How can I view subtasks in my Today or Next 7 Days view in iOS?

For example, I have a Daily Routines project with a PM Review task (with subtasks) that I have set to repeat. When the PM Review shows up in my Today list, though, I only see PM Review and none of its subtasks. I've tried adding due dates to all the subtasks, but then they show up separately from the PM Review heading and clutter up my Today list.

Is it possible to view subtasks under their main task in iOS (in the Today and Next 7 Days view)? And, if not, will it be soon? Since I have a lot of process routines (and I don't want to have every single sub-task popping up in my Today and Next 7 Days lists), this is a big issue for me. Thanks so much!

Hello Maria,

It's currently not possible to view sub-tasks below a parent task in this view on iOS, but we're going to add it in the future.

For now, the only alternatives are to either add due dates to the sub-tasks too so they will also meet the search criteria and be displayed separately or access the related projects to see the full task structure.

Best regards,

Thanks for the quick response, David! I'll find a workaround if I know this will be added in the (hopefully near) future. Thanks again!
