Sub tasks in Due Today?

In the middle or writing this post, I ended up figuring out the answer to my own question when I went back to the app to figure out the best way to ask it. However, I've decided to post it anyway, in case someone else has the same question in the future. Is there no manual for Due Today?

Original post:

In lieu of an official Toodledo release for Android (come on guys, please!!!), like many of you, I'm trying to find the perfect third party app for my Nexus 7. I tried DGT GTD, but I wasn't fond of the design, and I think I found sorting to be limited when compared to Toodledo (although it's been a little while and I can't remember if that's right).

I'm currently trying out Due Today, which is better designed I think. But I can't for the life of me figure out how to deal with sub tasks. I read that they were supported. I can see that the sub tasks I have created in Toodledo are visible and nicely indented in the app. But I can't create new sub tasks, and I can't figure out how to change a tasks parent task.

I have what is I think a pretty common setup. I use folders for Areas of responsibility (teaching, research, personal, family, etc.). Within those, I have individual next actions and tasks with sub tasks (projects).


1. Long press a task to select it.
2. Tap the menu icon (three dots in a vertical line).
3. Select "Set Parent Task."

This works, and is actually an improvement on Toodledo in at least one respect: you can change the parent task of more than one task very easily (I never use Toodledo's multi--edit feature because I often can't come up with a search that returns just the tasks I want to manipulate). However, it would be nice to have the option to change a parent task from the standard edit screen of a task in Due Today as well.
