Nested tasks don't inherit due dates Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I've some problems with due dates.
Since I like to split my tasks in subtasks, and I don't want to be overwhelmed by projects, I just nest subtasks under a main task. I think its one of the most powerful features of OF, totally lacking from competitors. In the past I'd used OmniOutliner to do the same, but of course in task management OF is the winner.
My problem is that the main task doesn't inherit the due date from the nested, active subtasks. Of course I'm talking of sequential tasks.
Since the due date is not inherited, the main tasks cannot be sorted by date, making it hard to see the most urgent main-tasks (that again contain the most urgent nested sub-tasks)
Hope I'd been clear enough.
Do you have any suggestion to do this, or is it something missing from OF101?
