Hi
I think a fourth nesting level for tasks would be very useful.
Client / Project / Task / Subtask
Thanks

    I'm also curious about this. Why is there a limit? What if I want to:
    Client 1 > Website Project > Logo Design > Design 1

    And that I want to track how much time I am spending on each logo design? So if I have a second design I can have two entries:
    Client 1 > Website Project > Logo Design > Design 1
    Client 1 > Website Project > Logo Design > Design 2

    So right now it looks like

    Client 1 Website Project > Logo Design > Design 1
    Client 1 Website Project > Logo Design > Design 2
    Client 1 Network Setup > Server Installation > Hardware
    Client 1 Network Setup > Server Installation > Software
    Client 1 Network Setup > PC 1 Installation > Hardware
    Client 1 Network Setup > PC 1 Installation > Software

    And it gets worse...
    Client 1 Network Setup > PC 2 Installation > Hardware
    Client 1 Network Setup > PC 2 Installation > Software

    Client 1 is filling up my screen! I'm not complaining coz it's making me money but the clutter is killing me! Help!

    Can we have unlimited nests? Ok 5. Just 5 and I'll live with it. I promise.

    Hi grumo,

    I still want to add another nesting level for tasks, but I haven't had the time yet to implement it. It is on my ToDo list for version 1.6 of the Mac app.

    Thank you for your patience!

    +1; see also http://support.timelimeapp.com/discussions/suggestions/85-deeper-nesting-of-tasks-faster-selection-of-tasks

    I also miss this feature, as my preferred structure would be:

    client > project > milestone > tasks

    As workaround I use: client > project--milestone > tasks

    But I would preferre the a solution with at least 4 levels (infinite levels would be even better, but maybe it's harder to design). I guess if there are i.e. 9 levels allowed, > 99.9% of the users won't notice the limit.

    Best regards,
    Lars
