Show Subtasks Underneath Parent Tasks Preferably as Hierarchy or Tree

Show Subtasks Underneath Parent Tasks Preferably as a Hierarchy or Tree:

Please introduce this feature. You should be able to view the subtasks on the main view underneath the parent task, preferable indented. Google tasks does this despite being one of the most basic task list apps available. Optionally it would also be nice if you could could have the option to expand/collapse to either Parent, Level 1 Subtasks, or Level 2 Subtasks. Something like this:

+/- Show Only Parent Tasks
+/- Show Level 1 Subtasks
+/- Show Level 2 Subtasks
------------------------------------------------
| □ Parent Task 1
| □ -- Subtask 1
| □ ---- Subtask 1.1
| □ ---- Subtask 1.2
| □ -- Subtask 2
| □ ---- Subtask 2.1
| □ ---- Subtask 2.2
| □ -- Subtask 3
| □ ---- Subtask 3.1
| □ ---- Subtask 3.2
| □ Parent Task 2
| □ -- Subtask 1
| □ ---- Subtask 1.1
| □ ---- Subtask 1.2
| □ -- Subtask 2
| □ ---- Subtask 2.1
| □ ---- Subtask 2.2
| □ -- Subtask 3
| □ ---- Subtask 3.1
| □ ---- Subtask 3.2

You will should also still be able to see a list of subtasks when opening the Parent task details.

I have been using google tasks for a long time. I only stumbled across RTM this afternoon and liked some of the features it had. I purchased pro membership right away for the subtask feature, this was the only reason why I made the purchase. I'm very disappointed that I can't view the subtasks in my lists (except for a smart list with of subtasks = true). I regret purchasing the pro membership ani will stop using RTM if this feature isn't added soon. There are many other free options I can look into.

I find the lack of this feature to be a fundamental flaw as well. It is too difficult to get the high level view of a project.

Yes please, this would be a useful improvement.
Today I wanted to see all the incomplete subtasks associated with a tag, but I couldn't. An optional hierarchy view would be great.

Totally agree too. This feature would be particularly useful in smart lists where the subtasks are lost within their main task

This feature would be a game changer for a lot of us I think. I'm rather surprised there aren't more up-votes / +1s / likes loves / adores / obsessions / restraining orders for this breathtaking functionality. This is my number one feature request. Love you Bobby T. <3

I think it's time to point the elephant in the room: literally EVERYONE here is crying for the following features:

1) Ability to display children items indented
2) Ability to expand/collapse children items
3) Ability to quickly change item indentation by swiping left/right
4) Ability to quickly re-order items by swiping up/down
5) Ability to perform 4) and 5) on multiple items simultaneously, rather than just one item at a time.

By "quickly" I mean without having to activate some sort of special "Edit" mode that takes extra taps and fiddling. Just swipe directly. After each action, provide an undo button in case it was accidental.

In the days of PalmOS there was this beautiful app called ListPro which some of you may have heard of or even used, this app was lists heaven. It could be a simple to-do list but it could be also a fairly powerful (yet easy to figure out) databsae, with very cool filtering and search options. Then along came capacitive touchscreens and the whole thing went down the loo. Not being nostalgic but PalmOS was such a fast workflow, I miss it dearly. To date I am yet to find an app that comes close. All to-do apps for Android I've tested lacks all or some of the above four features which are ESSENTIAL to a to-do list app. No indentation = FAIL. No way to collapse/expand children = FAIL. No way to re-order the list quickly = FAIL. Developers: wake up!! I've just installed Remember the Milk, same thing. It took me longer to download the installer package than to test it and convince myself that it was yet another dumbed down to-do list like all the other apps on the Play Store. All these developers are wasting their life. Seriously, if you are going to give us a crappy app like all the similar hundreds of apps we've already installed, tested and dumped without hesitation, then there are better things for you to do with your time.

I think it is time to react on this. It's an obvious flaw in the product. Please do it so I don't need to start shopping for another task manager.

I have just now posted a use case scenario where the lack of this feature is making some of tasks remain hidden
