Description

0) Create a task A, and a task B.
1) Click Edit on Task B and set the task ID to the ID of task A. Save.
2) Observe that task A shows task B as a SubTask
3) Observe that the normal (not 'edit) view of Task B gives no indication that it has its parent id set.
4) Click edit on task B and you can see parent ID set.

I expect that if a parent ID for a task that it is visible in some way.

The last sentence should read. "I expect that if a parent ID for a task is set, that it is visible in some way without clicking 'Edit'."

+1 this would be very helpful!

After much more searching we discovered that over the issue title, any parent task titles are also shown in tiny font. This is a UI issue then because that is not a good place for that info. The parent ID is a field like all other fields, so I expect it is shown as a field, near all the other fields.

I think this issue should be set as resolved since you found where the parent task is. Or the issue should be updated to request a change in location of the parent task.

I'm not totally happy with the UI representation, but it does work and I don't think adding more fields is a large improvement. I'm marking the issue as resolved.
