Parent Child tasks - Indents not showing


Level 1


I am fairly new to WF so still trying to navigate through all the tutorials etc 🙂

I have started created tasks, however I do not have the Indent/un-indent icon doesn't exist and when I right click on a task it doesn't show up there either. I have been set up as a System Administrator however, this has been racking my brain as to why I cant indent/unindent my tasks.

I can see my subtasks when I click on the parent task > then click on sub tasks. But it would be great to see the highlighted parent task/milestone and the indented child tasks.


Any suggestions would be great!

Thank you all.

Is it possible to check that all the Tasks are still in order by clicking into the grey column header above tasks with a hash mark & arrow? Clicking in here restores the correct order which can get mixed up when you are setting up & moving tasks about.


Another area to check is if you have a Filter, View or Grouping in use as this can also prevent the parent/child tasks displaying as expected and removes the options to indent when you right click etc


Hope this helps!

Be sure that your task list is showing in numerical order, otherwise you can't see the indents.

Came here to second Stacey's note. Fought this for a bit with some task reports when I first started.

I discovered that the indent/outdent icon appeared once I took it out of Planning status.
