Viewing Sub Tasks in "7 days, overdue" view

Is it possible to view the intended sub tasks in the "today" and "7 days, overdue" view similar to how the iPhone/iPad app displays the results?

Hello Benjamin,

All subtasks are displayed on these views, but without and indent level. Because these views show tasks selectively (only those which meet the search criteria), an indent level would suggest that a task is a sub-task of the one above which most likely won't be the case.

If a task on this view is a parent task, then you can use the arrow icon on the left side to view its sub-tasks as a reference.

Best regards,

Thanks David, is there plans to provide intent support in the search views as well? I primarily use these views to organize my daily tasks showing them with an indent such as done on the iPhone would be extremely helpful.

We will certainly try to make the views consistent, but most likely, we will remove the indentation in the iPhone app. The reason is simply to avoid any confusion regarding the task structure. For this to be intuitive, you have to know right away that on this view tasks are not displayed as a structure and if you don't know it, then you'll see sub-tasks of other tasks that are not their parents, have no relation with them, different random indent levels - tasks at level 4 below level 1 tasks etc.

Of course, we'll still try to find an even better way of displaying sub-tasks in these views in the future, but for now this solution seems the most intuitive.

Best regards,
