Getting sub tasks onto timeline


#1

I need to show all tasks and sub tasks on time line. I’m I better to just have my sub tasks as Tasks
eg of current hierarchy being used:
PROJECT; Water Use Efficiency
TASK: Field Day
Section: Pre-planning
Subtask: Get quotes and confirm field day venue
Section: Implementation
Subtask: Deliver Field Day
Section: Reporting and Evaluation
Subtask: Collate evaluation and include in final report

I know I can use Tab-P in subtask and assign to project, but it just puts it back across in the Task View, so am I better off just putting the sub task in as a Task in the first place??
Thanks

If you want to use subtasks, at this time, you may have to live with some unwanted behavior like what you mention here.

There is a topic where you can vote for adding subtasks to timelines.

There are many users that use subtasks. But I personally find they currently come with more cons than pros.

I recommend you search the forum for subtasks and you will find a number of conversations on the subject and decide for yourself the best way to organize your Projects.
