Pretty silly bug this tbh.

Hi @itierney, thanks for reaching out!

I can confirm that this is not a bug but expected behaviour. To import subtasks successfully, they do need to be located under the parent task in the .csv file.

I hope this clarifies this for you :slight_smile:

Classic “Its not a bug, its a feature” answer.
Can you give me 1 reason why you would want them to be under the parent?
I can give you 2 reasons why you wouldn’t:

  1. You don’t know what order they will be exported in.
  2. If you reorder the tasks yourself, for some reason its breaks.

I literally spent half a a day on this nonsense.
