Thank you! That's a big help.Karen NYC commented
I'm not sure if I even know how to use a "subtask," but my biggest complaint about DGT GTD (which is totally awesome in many respects) is that I'd like to have different views of my tasks - a view in which I can see the projects and then drill down to review the tasks within that project, AND a separate view in which I just see the individual tasks. Perhaps I have my settings wrong, but it seems that if a task (say, "email Joe") due today appears within a project, all my views tell me I have something due in the project ("Home Renovations") today, but not what the task is. I have to drill into the project to see.
I know having to drill down once may seem like a trivial complaint, but the whole point of GTD is supposed to be that once you've thought about your projects in a weekly review, your decisionmaking about what task to perform from moment to moment is effortless -- you quickly review your list of action items that can be done at the computer, say, and pick one. When I implemented GTD on paper, each context was a separate list, and I could just flip to that list and pick something appropriate.
I find that when I open the app and just see a list of projects, knowing that I have to drill down into each one to see whether it includes a task that fits the time and brainpower I have available, I just revert to "I know what I need to do" and close the app.
I'm not sure if "Hide subtasks" would help, but if it would I can't seem to find the setting....

It makes sense.
I can’t plan it yet but it’s a candidate for a future, future, future release :-)Karen NYC supported this idea ·
