Subtasks due dates
Hi! Firstly, nice to see that you added subtasks
What I think this is still missing though is due dates for subtasks.
Also a due date for the projects? or maybe project mile stones?
I suggest Enable subtask date and comments

I agree. This would be very helpful. Everybody uses Redbooth a little differently to organize. If it's easy to add due dates and even separate assignments to subtasks that would be awesome.

Subtasks in effect create a third level in the work taxonomy, and they *would* be useful if they were more than just comments. Most of all, I want to be able to assign subtasks to anyone, notwithstanding the parent task ownership.
Agreed! Due dates on subtasks would be very helpful. I would like to set them as milestones or assign them to other team members.
this would be great for a "stage gate" type of sign off for design projects.
particularly if paired with the old team box gantt chart task view
I don't necessarily see due dates on sub tasks as required as they should inherit the due date of the task. That said I'd love to see some dependency linking between sub tasks such that when one is complete there is a notification that you can move to the next linked subtask, plus the ability to assign subtasks to other users....that would be brilliant IMO.
May I say that I find this a really bad idea. This will add so much more complexity into a single task - and I love the simple subtask design.
If you need to assign subtasks to other users, your task should have been a task list - and your subtasks should have been tasks.
With that said, adding subtasks is a great way to "take notes" - and it could be useful to be able to convert a task with subtasks to a task list with tasks.
Without this feature (i.e. treating each 'subtask' just as a 'task', except that it can't have a 'subtask'); a 'project' reduces to really a "task", and a 'task' is really reduces to a "subtask".

Subtask due dates and the ability to assign a subtask to a different user would be a great addition.

It would be nice to offer a different subtask under the original task to a different user.

Hi, I would like to add that also comments on subtasks would be great as well!
