Tree or hierarchy display of sub-issues on issues page

Added by Brian Schwartz about 10 years ago

Hello Redmine community,

I am grateful to the open source community for creating Redmine - it has become an indispensable tool for my business and my team.

One thing we've struggled to figure out without success has to do with the display or sub-issues on the issues page. Getting them to display in a hierarchy or 'tree' view has been inconsistent. I'm unable to figure out how redmine is deciding which subissues to display nested on the issues, even when I have multiple subissues assigned to a single issue, the display on the issues page doesn't reflect them. I've uploaded a screen capture to show you what is going on.

You can see the screen capture at:

Any tips or guidance on what might be going on is truly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

To get the correct tree in the issuelist you will need to add the 'parent task'-column and sort on that one. This is documented at several places on btw.
The side-behavior you're experiencing is caused by the lucky shots in the sense that these sub-issues are placed under their actual parent based on the actual sorting that is active on the issuelist. I agree this is far from optimal.
Several issues are already opened regarding this issue and some other related improvements of the subtasking feature.
