Showing Task Name Next to Subtasks


When getting reminders or updates about a subtask, there doesn't seem to be an easy listing of the 'mother' task visible for reference. See attached image of subtasks.

I break my todoist organization down like this:

PROJECT NAME: Client's Name (serves as client folders)
TASKS: Project Headers (serves as an organizer for all of the actual things to do)
SUBTASKS: Actual to-do items assigned to team members (mean nothing unless attached to project headers.

For example: I might have proof read listed as a subtask 10 times under different "Newsletter" projects. If I get an email that reminds me to "proofread" it's easily dismissed because I don't easily see WHICH newsletter for WHICH client.

Any easy way to make the name of the task appear next to the subtask? I think when I did the business trial it did appear, near the name of the subtask in a smaller font. ??

Hello Elizabeth,

Such option is not available in Todoist for business. Maybe you saw the label name show up next to the task?

Nonetheless, thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it and we'll look into adding such option in future updates :-)
