Tasks.org subtask syncing issue

When a list from Tasks.org is synced with Vikunja, the relationship between the parent and child is not preserved. I have to manually click on each subtask and then select the relationship to the parent tasks. And then the tasks are still displayed at the same nesting level as the parent tasks, which at least to me is less visually clear.

What is the expected behaviour for Vikunja when importing nested task lists from Tasks.org? Is the parent/child relationship not being preserved a bug?

This sounds like a bug.

I have the same issue but in both ways. I’ve setup vikunja over caldav in the tasks .org App

Vikunja → App
Create a main Tasks with 2 subtasks in Vikunja. On the mobile i’ve got 3 main tasks which are not related to each other

tasks.org → Vikunja
Create a main Tasks with 2 subtasks in the tasks.org app on the mobile. Vikunja Webinterface shows 3 main tasks which are not related to each other

Vikunja:
Vikunja

Mobile:

I had a look at the ics file directly. A Task with a related subtask looks in the ics file:

BEGIN:VTODO

There is no relation between this 2 tasks on the caldav interface. I think the “related-to” property is missing: Caldav - related-to

The same happens when creating a task with a subtask on the mobile and sync over caldav. I get 2 PUT entries in the log of vikunja. When looking at the 2 ics file from the puts, there are also no relation properties.

Looks like it, yes. Thanks for digging this up.
