Shared Projects do not appear under the original parent in the TD of recepient.

If I take a sub project in my TD, and share it with others, it does not retain its position to the parent. This is true even when the parent is a shared folder.

We are taking specific effort to design folder structures that utilize sub folders. it is a great feature.

Is there a method to allow shared sub folders to keep their parent? I know that we can manually drag the project into the parent. This seems like needless work.

This is the correct behavior at this time. Each project, no matter sub or not, is treated as a new project when the other user accepts it. We will look into adding more options in how projects are shared in the future.

For now, they will need to re-organize it themselves once added.

Hello Brendon,

I have been using todoist for quite some weeks now, and have the intention to propose it in my company. But I take the sharing feature very seriously. I am very interested in this feature that shares entire projects with sub project hierarchy.
I'm sharing this with you because it seems the voting time expired,
When could we expect this to be implemented?

I can not say when this will happen, but it will most likely at some point.

An option to share projects and their hierarchy would be huge for our team.
