Hi,
I'm impressed with Dooster, but I don't see subtasks. Have I missed them? I find it very helpful to jot down a task when it comes to mind, then break it down later into pieces.
Thanks.

    I guess I have to think in terms of "task lists" in place of what I used to consider to be tasks? So my pre-Dooster "tasks" need to be created as "Task Lists", so that my "subtasks" can now be created as "Tasks"? Seems like too much thinking to start out with. Can I convert a Task into a Task List?

    Hi Kurt

    Thank you for your question.

    Not really. While the hierarchy is Projects / Task Lists / Tasks you also have task dependencies which are de facto subtasks.

    What I do is quickly write ideas / notes etc on the fly using the top "Add Task / Note" etc field - that's at the top of every screen. I will save that "task" and then later can go in and break it into smaller tasks - either in the same task list or as dependent tasks. (I usually open a new window to do this - but that's probably too much detail just now ;-)

    You can read about dependent tasks here https://dooster.tenderapp.com/kb/more-features-extras/dependent-tasks

    and this quick section on nested tasks may be of interest aswell https://dooster.tenderapp.com/kb/about-dooster/nesting-tasks

    Hope that helps

    Thanks again

    John
