Nested tasks with due dates that pre-empt their parent's due date, won't appear. For example,
Blue Parent Task (Due in 3 days)
... Red Sub Task (Due tomorrow)
... ... Red Sub Sub Task (due yesterday)
... Green Sub Task (Due 2 days ago)
In the above example, no matter what viewing method you use (dashboards, project view, my work) you cannot guarantee that you will see your sub tasks with due dates, if the parent isn't due yet.
We all use Wrike differently. Why I may want to have a parent task that doesn't have a due date until next week, while the children are due in the days before, is my business and may be entirely legitimate. To that end, if you want me to use this application in place of others, why are you dictating how the dates are presented? Allow us to determine that.
I should, if I want, be able to see all tasks (regardless of how deep) appear as due items. For those folks who don't want it to function that way, they can disable it.
I can't tell you how frustrating this is. I cannot rely on this as my go to 'work schedule' every day anymore as I can't rely on the information it's giving me.
For those who will ask, I use parent tasks instead of parent folders because you cannot search folders, but can search tasks. It's simply the way we work, it works for us, period.
So... is this something we should expect to see any time in the near future?
