Sub Tasks - Show Parent Task in all views

When I pull a report or view a dashboard of specific tasks, there is no easy way for me to see what parent task is associated with any sub-tasks. 

We may have several sub-tasks that are named similarly, for example "Load data into channel tables." If one resource is assigned multiple tasks like this, a report for them might show:

-Load data into channel tables

-Load data into channel tables

-Other task

-Load data into channel tables

But there is no way to easily see what parent task those sub-tasks are referring to unless you individually click into each one which is not ideal. 

I'd like to request that we somehow add a way to easily see what the title of the parent task is for all sub-tasks. Is this possible to do?

This is a serious problem for us now.  The card on the dashboard views just needs the parent task name field added. That is all. On other programs like Airtable/Zenkit, you can customize what fields the card on the Board shows.

Hi Ramesh Muthusamy Subramaniam, welcome to the Community. You can see the parent task with its subtasks in New Dashboards by selecting the option Show as hierarchy:
