Business Project Template: How to change the way sub-tasks are displayed in the board, timeline and


I was looking for information on the forum, but I did't find it.

I created a business project based on the "Task tracking" scheme/template & I've a problem with displaying sub-tasks on the board & list views.

1. Sub-tasks don't show up under the parent task in the board view.


Can it be set like this?

2. Is it possible to display subtasks on the timeline like in a software project's roadmap under epics?


3. On the list view, everything is sorted by key or summary on the A-Z, Z-A principle. I added subtasks to task 1, 2 & 3 & then back to task 1 & that subtask doesn't show under main task 1 but at the end of the list. Can it be changed to make it more logical?

Hi @Tomasz Smal  - The board now has an icon that shows if there are sub-tasks associated with the issue. And if you hover over the icon, you can know how many are complete.
