Subtasks - how to export?
I like to regularly backukp / export my ToodleDo data.
I was looking at a CSV export of my current tasks & noticed that subtasks is NOT a column.
There also doesn't seem to be any reference to subtasks in the CSV export at all.
I did some digging & confirmation; the sub-tasks ARE being exported; the data is there; but each sub-task exists as their own separate / stand-alone task; they do not seem to have any relation / reference to the parent task they are under, nor any reference to other sub-tasks.
Is this normal / expected behavior?
Is there anyway to backup my ToodleDo as-is, meaning with sub-tasks intact, properly set / attributed under the parent / master task?
I kno there are several different formats to export / bkup ToodleDo data; .JSON, .TXT, and .XML if I'm not mistaken; do any of those formats backup with subtasks intact?
Is there any workaround to include subtasks appropriately filed under their parent / master as I have them in my ToodleDo acct? I'd love to have that.
Hope this makes sense....
It looks like if you use the XML backups, the backup XML file (https://www.toodledo.com/tools/connect_backup.php) have a field called <parent> that references the parent task.
If you use the XML backup option, you should be able to restore with the subtasks intact.
