Subtasks change priorities/dealines of parent task?

Added by aenost machytka over 7 years ago

Hi,

I have a simple issue:

When I create a subtask with a different priority or deadline than the parent task, it changes the parent task's dealine/priority.

This is very much against the workflow we use in our company.

Is there any way to change this? I would liek to create an issue for my PM, with a given deadline, and I need him to create sub tasks with different deadlines.

Thanks a lot for help!

I don't think that's possible and for the most of us, the current functionality is what we expect anyway...

Hi Arnost,

take a look at issue #5490, that adresses the exact same problem (which I also mention to be quite annoying). Unfortunately it doesn't seem as if there is any solution available.

It is not the issue anymore. In my Redmine 3.4.8 you have a setting to make subtask priorities and deadlines dependent or independent with parent task.

Despite that this is a 7-year old thread that is being reopened, I'll need to make a remark.

This setting you describe is what is provided by issue #5490, as referenced by Moritz in RE: Subtasks change priorities/dealines of parent task?. That setting however does not provide a full/true solution for the issues arising from the subtasking feature. See eg. #5875 and #6687.

Mod-note: Please, next time, don't reopen very old forum threads without any apparent reason.
