    Any way that feature like Parent/Child can be added to the tasks lists, tasks and sub-tasks?
    This would save a lot of time when moving tasks around.
    Also, it'd be nice if task had an option to auto adjust schedule depending on predecessor completion date.

    Hello Sasha,

    You can use sub-task addon which will create child task under a parent task.

    Here is the link for the subtask addon –

    Thanks

    Towhid, I actually meant displaying the parent task as well as defining Predecessors of the sub task, task and task list, which will not allow that entity to change its progress or being marked as completed unless it's predecessor(s) completed.

    Also, having a field in a task/sub-task, which will allow to change it's parent from within the task. Just like Task list has where you can choose which milestone it is associated with.

    Here's the scenario I ran into yesterday to show you where it'd be very useful:
    I created a project with tasks. Then the team set down to discuss it and decided that some tasks should actually be a sub task of another. Therefore, we had to delete and re-create about 20 tasks instead of simply changing their parent, or dragging and dropping it into a task (this is another issue referenced below).

    Now there is a problem with sub tasks:
    When you look at the Task List, there is no way to tell how many sub tasks are inside of a particular task. You can't even tell if there are any sub-tasks within it until you open it.
    Suggestion:
    What would be nice is to at least have a label stating that this task has sub tasks which must be completed prior to marking task completed.
    At most, it'd be nice to have them listed or collapsed in the task list under their parent. Also have them dragable so parent can be changed ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hello Sasha,

    Thank you for your suggestion. I will discuss about this point with our developer team. Hope they will implement this in near future.

    Thanks
