Thunderbird can act not only as a mail client, but also calendar, address book, tasks app and more, which gives new productivity opportunities – for example, you can very easily convert an e-mail into a task or event. One of the things Thunderbird currently lacks, however, is support for sub-tasks/hierarchical to-do. Let me show you this amazing feature on an example (using Nextcloud Tasks):

On Bugzilla, this feature was requested 21 years ago: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=194863

There are no good desktop apps supporting caldav and sub-tasks that I'm aware of, and the only such app for Android is Tasks.org. In addition, it seems Thunderbird already supports necessary attribute: https://github.com/Betterbird/thunderbird-patches/issues/79#issuecomment-1465267112

Cant wait to see a release for this. Just started using the caldav protocol recently for my families shared lists to escape the cloud. And I could not believe Thunderbird does not support this already. Glad to her its about to come.

Any update on when subtasks will be available / released?  Would love to begin using Thunderbird but am unwilling to do so without subtasks.

The Thunderbird PM provided an update on Mastodon:

Q: Any updates on this? 🙂

A: not in the next ESR (due out in August-ish). Not sure exactly when, trying to figure out what all should happen in the Tasks section, as it is long overdue for some love.
