Sub-Task Board View

Currently, you can't see Sub-Tasks split out at the "Board" view. They are rolled up into the parent task. The reasoning I was given is that subtasks don't live in the space or project they are created, but rather within the task itself and they are given a "ghost tag" to help you identify where the parent task is.

 The work around provided to me by Wrike is to go in and tag the space/project and it will show up then. While this works, it isn't convenient and adds (what I believe to be) unnecessary steps. Based on my experience with other similar project management boards, tasks and sub tasks are visible on the board automatically and you can filter out tasks from sub tasks if you want to just see one or the other.

I see little to any need to use "ghost tags" to fulfill this need. We should be able to see all tasks and sub tasks on a board to better understand where ALL tasks are in the workflow. We shouldn't have to jump through hoops to make this happen.

I'm liking this feature proposal!

Indeed, when we want to divide the work of a larger task into multiple tasks & assign each task to the right person, it's now completely unclear what the status is of each task in the board itself.

Why have a board overview, when you have to open each task-with-subtask to see if anything is being blocked, assigned to me, ready for testing etc?

I tried the workaround, and the subtasks show up in the board, but with no text or link for one to understand that it is a subtasks...  and the original parent task is still shown containing 4 subtasks... quoite annoying and unfriendly.

the subtasks of a task should be possible to see (and hide) in board view by "expanding" or similar (like in list view)

Hi Tomas Bäckman, may I ask if you've had the chance to try the new Board view? It gives you the opportunity to hide and expand the subtasks. You can find more information about it here. Please let me know if it helps🙋🏻‍♀️

Just following up on this... is there a timeline for adding the function to "expand sub-tasks" on the board? For an example of how it works, I found Clickup does it.... but, the software is a little glitchy compared to Wrike. So, I'd hold off implementing if Wrike is on it and there is a timeline.
