My tasks often involve a number of sub tasks . In my notes I would put the sub tasks under the main one, indented a level
This is exactly what you can do - indent by pressing the tab key and your task will automatically become a subtask.
Nope. Those are no subtasks - those are just indented tasks. Maybe it looks like it was a subtask but it’s just a new task :: indented. There is no relation to the task above.
Well, it depends what you want to achieve - the OP wasn’t very concrete in his/her description.
Well if you mean an actual relation to each other, then I guess the simple answer is no. Not without a plugin. Tasks in core Obsidian are basically just checkboxes.
What I do these days is use the Kanban plugin. (There are others too.)
The kanban cards are my main “tasks” or projects. And then I turn the card into a new note. And inside those notes, I keep “subtasks”.
Then with Dataview, I collect all the tasks that are inside notes that are linked from that Kanban board. And sort by note. So I have a list of all my tasks, in a sub-relation to each card in my Kanban. I put that note in my right side pane, and pin it.
That’s just my approach, and it works for me. The downside is that I haven’t yet figured out how to also sort or filter by Kanban status.
yea, but when I want to show all open tasks in another file, then it doesn’t show the task>subtask hierarchy
tasks not done no due date description does not include #migrated
Can the Kanban plugin show tasks in table/database format like Notion?
If you use dataview, it will show the hierachy. What method/plugin are you using to show your open tasks in another file?
