How to view a list of tags and still maintain task/subtask structure?

Right now, if I display a single tag, it displays them first by due date, then by priority, and breaks the task/subtask structure, making my tasks appear confusing, as I don;t remember which one is their related parent

Seems to make sense that there be a way to keep the priority within the subtasks, but still keep them nested??

Hello Jon,

If you attach a label to the parent task, then when it will be displayed on the list, you will see an arrow on the left side of this task which allows you to expand it and see its children.

If these sub-tasks have the same label too, they will also be shown separately. This is the only way that we can display all tasks that match the search criteria and give you an option to see sub-tasks of a parent for reference without showing tasks that don't meet the search criteria at all, but are parent tasks of other tasks that do.

Best regards,

Ah, so if I don't add labels to the subtasks, they'll still display under the parent (if it's tagged) when I search for a tag?

Sorry for the incessant questions. Still getting used to this.

Head to Todoist.com, top right corner, Settings. There should be a tab called Picture, that will allow this image to change.
