[Coming Soon...๐Ÿ•‘] Feature Request - Time entry in sub-tasks needs to roll up to Parent Task

When we set up a project we have a custom field that contains a invoice milestone for each project task that is a client deliverable

We also estimate each resources time before the project starts so we can compare estimate vs actuals for each of the delivery tasks

Under a Task there may be several sub-tasks, but when someone enters time to a sub-task it doesn't roll up to the parent task.

This is an issue for us as we would like to compare our estimates, but the actuals will contain hours logged to sub-tasks that don't show up to the parent task.

Please let us know if this can be enabled (possibly using a check box that says, "Hours on sub-tasks roll up to parent task?"

Thanks

I'm also looking for this. I need to see the total time on a task, and don't want to have to add the different times on the 14 different sub tasks together.

Lisa is this planned feature to roll up only efforts? Or will this also roll up Start and End dates for subtasks? If auto-date roll up is not planned, then i will start another thread and get that upvoted.

Right now subtask start and end dates for a task are completely independent of the start and end dates of its subtasks. It would be extremely helpful to be able to check and box and have these dates ALWAYS roll up. The wrike labs roll-up implementation makes it 100% manual which is frustrating!

I have no use for subtasks without this feature.

Hi Tim Livingston! From my understanding, the team is planning more functionality involved in the future rollup function. But we will be able to share more detail when we're closer to the release.ย

Leaning in to try to keep this moving forward. We really need this (very basic) ability to roll up subtask time entries to the task level.

I've been following this thread for a year now and figure it could use another bump. I want to be able to set a budgeted amount of time ("effort") on parent tasks and have the time tracked on child tasks "roll up" to count against that budgeted effort. Currently we have to either do all time tracking on the parent task, or split up the budgeted hours into all of the subtasks, which is not how we work.

I will not say something as silly as "this is very basic functionality" since I'm a software developer myself and understand how this feature request affects many systems. Just want to show my support.
