My team currently uses projects to list clients, and since each client has many different projects ongoing, we add each client specific project as a section. As such, the day-to-day tasks that need to be done are added as subtasks of the respective section, but also to the section itself.
This makes adding a new task tedious, since it needs to be created as a subtask and then added to the project and section, and since we have many sections on each project, this requires searching for the section itself after adding the subtask to the project.
What I’m looking for is a way to automatically have a subtask be also listed on the parent task’s section.
The reason we work this way is because this allows for easier visibility when doing followup: knowing who did the previous step is easier by having the completed task be a subtask, since it’s always visible when viewing the main task. But the
opposite is true while the task is pending: having it only as a subtask makes viewing what is pending at a glance harder then it would be if the task list showed the subtask.
Maybe we are missing something, perhaps a change in workflow is needed, but it seems to me what would most help us is having a way of automatically having a subtask also show up below it’s parent section, perhaps the section could be the first suggestion when adding a subtask to a project.
