assign due date to subtasks

I would love to be able to assign a due date to subtasks. There are times when the subtasks need to happen and be tracked before the main task is completed.

        Droptask is buautiful and elegant for getting the big picture captured. I am struggling to add the detail tasks and subtasks in a way I can swich to "getting it done" mode versus "planning mode". For example if I have a large task that is due next month, but an urgent subtask that needs addressed on or by a specific day (submit paperwork, make a key phone call) to keep it on track I need it to show up in an easy list of what I should be working on right now.

        This Is obviously missing. Subtasks are done at différent dates...

        Nice to see that others share the feeling and desire for this feature to be implemented! With enough people bombarding this company to make this change I believe they will do it.

        It would be one thing if this feature was a free but we are individuals who are willing to PAY YOU to add a feature!

        C'mon Droptask!!!!!

        It is badly needed. I want a client to buy DropTask for a key project. However, it is impossible to do it without assigning due date to subtasks. I see that there is no comment from DropTask about it!!! It seems that they do not care for this improvement.

        Same sentiment - need subtask dates AND onwership assignment. THIS IS CRITICAL IF YOU WANT THIS TOOL TO WORK IN THE CORPORATE WORLD and for users to be satisfied.

        Oh look, TWO YEARS LATER AND STILL NOTHING. I check back periodically to see if devs have done anything about this and its just mind boggling they haven't.

        Still waiting droptask team...

        I have to add my voice to the complaint that this is taking too long to implement. I find myself constantly updating the task due date as each subtask is completed. Optionally there could be a start and end date for the task.

        Its been over a year in review, and this suggestion is number two in top ten. I just can't seem to make droptask pro work for me without this hopeful feature and I will be disabling my pro status. sad face because the potential is there, its just buried and the dev's just don't seem to see it being as important as the community!

        I think this is a great idea. I'm trying grouping tasks and creating dependencies, but this would give an extra level of detail. I also think due dates for groups would be good

        I just love the visual aspect of Droptask and have tried to use it for almost two months now. There is just too little project management capability (like the item requested here). I am sad to say i'm going back to Omnifocus :( I will miss the layout, but not the level of functionality.

        Actually, I think we need two different things:
        - a default due date definable on a group, that is automatically given to all added tasks and
        - a due date on the group itself, e.g. to set a start date on the group (slash project)

      • Proxima commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree, plus it should be possible to assign a due date to a group, so that all tasks added to the group will automatically inherit that due date.

        Would also be good to be able to set target dates as well as due dates; target date in order to allow users to plan what they are doing and due dates so that managers can make sure that work is completed on time
