#50 Allow nested tasks


Nested tasks provide the ability to break-down larger tasks into smaller sub-tasks.

This is useful for planning the stages of the task as a whole, and in working out what to do next.

It's also a cute organisational feature.

    you can easily do that by adding a "context" in the task description. For example;

    Task 1: World domination #worlddomination
    Task 2: Get money #worlddomination
    Task 3: Get an army #worlddomination
    Task 4: Invent time travel #worlddomination

    Your main task (1) would not be complete until you have completed the 3 other tasks. You can easily see what's remaining to do by entering the "context" in the filter field (typing #worlddomi would be enough to list all tasks that are related to this)

    I think that approach is sufficient and does not add unnecessary features. There's an ongoing discussion about tagging tasks at https://sourceforge.net/p/osmo-pim/feature-requests/19 which would allow using tags as global tasks.

    Closing this for now as it hasn't been touched for years. Feel free to reopen this bug if you feel it's needed.
