[Status: Not planned] Hide dependent tasks until initial tasks are complete

We frequently have tasks that have starts dependent on other tasks being completed. Right now the due date changes on all tasks in a chain if the first one is moved, but it still clutters up our dashboards with tasks that can't be completed yet. We'd love if we could hide these tasks until the initial task is complete.

Hi Lisa.

I did read your suggestion above and it's not really going to work for us.  We are a small office (less than 50 employees), I have set up to have those sub-tasks with a start date way later and have the status color changed to red.  I will manually have to monitor my subtasks and re-date and re color my manager's subtasks when it is ready for her to work on.  I colored it red so if it does pop-up, she will inquire why it is red and not start on the task.  I have also updated her dashboard to only show tasks for the current week where as I had it set up to show all active tasks (future tasks as well).  We have columns running from active, green, yellow, red and deferred. 

I think this will be a good fix until there is a better solution.  I couldn't imagine monitoring/managing these tasks if we were a large office.  I am currently motivated to monitor my "lock QBs" tasks as it directly affects me and my ability to do my work.

I really hope and pray that in the NEAR future this ability will be added.
