Add user to subtasks should add to ParentTask

I often create Widget Views that are based on a custom status/field (e.g. Launch) and then a specific user (e.g. Joe).

I'm forced to assign that custom status to the parent task (which i sort of get) to make sure each user can view their assigned and custom field tasks organized:

 

Joes Launch Tasks

  • TaskA
  • Subtask1

Bob's Launch Tasks

  • TaskA
  • Subtask2

In order to make this work though I have to assign both Joe and Bob to TaskA. It seems to me the Assigned Users should inherit the subtasks users. In this way all I have to do is assign users to their specific tasks and then each one could see their tasks organized by parent task/tasks.

Hi Michael, thanks for sharing this suggestion! The logic behind assignees not being inherited is that sometimes a supervisor is assigned to a parent task, while other team members are assigned to subtasks - this makes reporting more accurate, since it reflects tasks based on their actual assignees, without including extra ones they might not actually be working on. I do understand how the idea you described could be useful for certain use cases, and I'd love to hear a bit more about the types of tasks you work with which require this workflow. Looking forward to hearing from you!
