Filter to distinguish tasks vs. subtasks desperately needed

There should be a filter to that will will select only parent tasks (i.e. not subtasks).  Or, better yet, can filter by task "level".

For example, if I want to generate a dashboard showing all "in process" tasks, excluding subtasks, I should be able to do that without some type of hacked solution where the subtasks have a different property that has been manually added/altered.

I believe this is related to the "Filter out subtasks in reports" request, which appears to have been put on the backburner, despite having quite an extensive conversation.  This is somewhat different because it has to do with creating dashboards, and affects the everyday use of the tool.

I am happy to discuss further and explain why I think this is absolutely essential.

I designate parent task w/a custom field but this a great suggestion nonetheless.

Yes please!  Sometimes I have to create an Analyze Board so I can use the Depth Level filter and display a quick list of tasks (with additional data about the tasks).  Wish this were an option in standard Filters for Tasks.

Serious bump on this. If you perform any kind of task organization with child/parent tasks (which seems like all users would do?) you need to be able to filter out just the lowest child task regardless of what kind of parent tasks/categories the child task lives under.
