Nested Projects/ Sub-projects
Often a project is comprised of several smaller projects as opposed to just discrete tasks. All user to create a folder tree of projects.

So frustrating, i'm giving up. Just confirmed here I can't do something as BASIC as organizing my projects by groups. Smart groups only organizes by task. I need to have my project list on the left show Large, medium and small project categories, then PROJECTS within those categories, not tasks. This has been requested here since 2011???
It takes 24 hours plus to get an emailed answer to a question, way too long when trying to get organized. No way to contact directly. Hopefully I can get my money back

This is a necessary feature! David Allen defines projects as outcomes (multi-task...tasks). The corollary to this is subtasks.
Tasks with subtasks should automatically become Outcomes themselves. Being forced into defining "projects" at the outset is stifling to the creative process GTD is supposed to preserve.
Been using GID for a couple of weeks now - really good but don't think I can manage without subtasks
Been to see a client today and need to effect four 'action points' within the next few days - Subtasks would have nailed it! Most other Task management apps have this function, it would just enhance the overall functionality
These posts are very old, but I'm still searching for the function.
You can now create a area, get a project in the area and put in a task.
But I'm looking for a tree function. A summary of all area's, projects and tasks beneath it.
yes. that is what I'm missing.
Agree this would be a really nice feature, similar to what is available in the omni-focus app.

Yes of course, most of professional projects are made of several subprojects. Would be nice to have project trees.
