Nested tasks

Tasks have their own hierarchy. The first-level task “Study comments on the exam answers” includes the second-level tasks “Study comments on the Writing exam answers” and “Study comments on the Speaking exam answers”. In the Singularity App, one task can be nested into another then this one can be nested to the other, and so on and so on

Nest a task into another task

  1. Select a task that you want to nest.
  2. Do one of the following:
    Method 1. Click on  ⌘ Cmd +  

    In this case, the task will be nested in the previous task. To return it to its previous level, press  ⌘ Cmd +  

    Method 2. Grab the task with the mouse and drag it to another task..

    In this case, absolutely any task can be selected as the parent task, even a task from another section or from a nested project.

Create a nested task

  1. Do one of the following:
    Method 1. Highlight the task and press  ⌘ Cmd +  !
    Method 2. Right-click on the task. In the pop-up menu, select Create a nested task.
  2. Type the task name and press  Enter

Delete a nested task

A nested task is deleted in the usual way.

If you delete a parent task, it will be deleted along with all its nested tasks.

If you restore a parent task, it will be restored with all its nested tasks. But if you restore a nested task first and then the parent task, the relationship between them will be broken and they will be restored as two independent tasks.

If you delete a nested task, the parent one will not be deleted. If you restore a nested task, the relationship with the parent one will be saved and the task will return to its original position.
