A great feature would be the ability to "focus" on a task that has subtasks. I.e. by invoking a "focus" command (e.g. via the dropdown) you only see the master task and it's children. There should be an easy / quick way to return back to the previous screen.

Another great feature would be to have the way to only show tasks with subtasks.

Go to the parent task, and click on the downward arrow and select Permanent Link.

Actually, you can easily setup a saved search that shows all the tasks with subtasks. Since I used parent w/subtasks as projects, I named my saved search "Projects" and I get exactly that. I also have two other saved searches for "Work Projects" and "Home Projects".

These days I spend most of my time using my saved searches that pull up exactly what I want the way I want it!

Taking this one step further...
I tried to create a saved search to single out a parent and all its child tasks. I can get the parent to display but I can't get the children to show up.

Task contains "Project Name"
Has SubTasks = Yes

I have one question that someone might have an answer too. I also use the "parent" task (as a project) and "child" subtasks as the next steps for that project. This works fine when I am initially creating them together, but I have found no easy way of how to make an existing task (next step) a sub task to a task (project) without having to do multiple searches. Just wondering if anyone did something differently. Thanks.
