Viewing "waiting for" subtasks

I am using lots of subtasks. For example:

"Finish documentation for X"
+-- subtask "Write chapter 1"
+-- subtask "Have peers review chapter 1".

When I'm done writing chapter 1, and I've asked my peers to review it, the second subtask has status "Waiting".

I have a lot of such structures.

Now, I'd like to see an overview of all tasks with status "Waiting" and the parent tasks they are in. However, I don't see how I can do this.

I can use "inline" view, where I only see the subtasks; but then, I miss the context information of the parent (in the case above, chapter 1 of *which* document?).

I can also use "indented" view, but then I only see the main tasks that have status "Waiting". I don't see the subtasks that have status "Waiting" unless their parent task has that as well.

This problem occurs in other, similar, circumstances as well.

I would really like an option "Always show parent task when subtask appears in search results" or something. Would that be possible? Or is there another way to solve my problem?

Thanks for your reactions,

If you go into your account settings and change your subtasks setting to "Indented mode shows all subtasks nested, even if the parent shouldn't be visible" Then I think that will solve it for you.
