NEED: To be able to review a simple list of all tasks and subtasks assigned to me in a given project.
SUGGESTION: There should be a quick-filter under the Project > Filter menu that toggles the inclusion of subtasks in filter results.
It makes no sense to be ‘menu-diving’ through all tasks and sub-subtasks of a project to review items assigned to me.
Currently, the options available to review my subtasks are less than adequate:
The Filter function in projects is great. But it only shows tasks. No subtasks.
I could go to My Tasks, but of course subtasks in My Tasks, somewhat controversially, don’t reference the projects they are in.
I can create a report that shows all tasks and subtasks assigned to me for a given project. So that works. But for every project I want to review, that means I have to: Refine search > In projects > (search for the project) > Click Search. Or the alternative would be to duplicate my project hierarchy with a bunch of saved reports. Both cumbersome options for what should be basic reporting/review functionality.
Of course, these problems can all be managed with some creative setup and a bit of extra manual admin. We covered some options on another thread in the Tips & Tricks category.
But it seems to me that a subtask quick-filter inside the project filters would be a complete solution to the problem and would meaningfully increase the utility of the nested subtasks functionality.
