Hey, team! Looking for advice or a workaround.
According to this thread and this thread, tasks with due dates automatically and always show on Forecast and tasks must inherit sooner due dates from container items.
Trouble is, if I have a project due (e.g., “Philosophy Paper”) with myriad tasks (“Outline paper”, “literature review on modern logic”, “literature review on history of scientific philosophy”, “set meeting with professor”), all of those tasks show up alongside (and, in fact, before) the project in Forecast.
This doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, I think. If a project has dozens of tasks Forecast is suddenly cluttered with things that don’t have a real due date – yet it’s still super important for me to be able to see that the project is due on a given date, as there are real consequences if I fail to submit my paper on time.
Any advice or clever workarounds?
I could incrementally defer the project’s tasks, but that seems like a lot of yak shaving.
I can imagine creating a similar perspective that shows incrementally due-or-deferred tasks without the calendar alongside, but replicating the way Forecast shows due and deferred tasks in other perspectives doesn’t seem to be possible.
