Subtasks Problem


Cannot create subtasks form TODAY view. Must go to project to create subtasks. Is there a better way?

Hello Greg,

This is an intended behavior as the today or other date-based views shows all tasks that match the search criteria on the same level and also contains tasks from different projects which makes it very difficult to know where exactly would you prefer to add a sub-task and what to do if the task below which you're adding it is originally also a sub-task within its projects.

That said, it's currently only possible to manage task structures from within their projects, but we'll look into making it possible from anywhere in the future.

Best regards,

Hi David,

I agree with Greg.

When you're completing tasks in the today view, very often you have to add a new subtask. It's very annoying to have to go to the project view for that.

I've seen that the add subtask feature (when you are in the today view) is available in Android, but is not available in the web app.

Any plans for improving it?

Another annoying thing in the today view is that you can not reorder subtasks.

Please consider solving this.

I absolutely agree with joaquin.

Adding subtaks from the today pane is a part of my workflow in Android. Obviously, most the people intuitively try to do this also in the web version. Please add this functionality to the web version of ToDoist. This would make the product more consistent.
