Do not show sub-tasks as separate items in "today's tasks" or any other query


If a task and sub-task are both due today, and I view all tasks due today, the sub-task is displayed as its own item as well as under its parent task.

When I create sub-tasks, I only want to see them under their parent task.

I have 2 possible solutions:

1. Do not display the sub-tasks as separate items, but if a parent task has a sub-task that meets the query, include the parent task and mark it with a star or something.

2. Display the sub-task, but do not include it under its parent task and include an additional label on the right like the Project labels.

Thanks!!! This is the best list organizer I have used and I especially love how much you work with your users. As soon as the mobile app is developed, I will be purchasing the premium version.

I would prefer the first solution.

Voting for the first solution; hide nested tasks anywhere except the parent.

Seeing double the tasks in my "Today" view is very overwhelming. The whole reason I nested the tasks in the first place was to make them less intimidating. Sadly, I will not be using subtasks again in their current state, but I would love the feature if the devs would change it (or add an option!) :)

Confusing and overwhelming for me, as well, to see subtasks twice. I think I like the first suggestion above too. Thanks!
