The current release has this partly implemented.
The way it works, when parents are collapsed, it will show due dates from subtasks in parentheses in appropriate columns (other dates too).
But we haven’t figured out the best options for whether to change the icon color or text color of parents based on subtasks. Should just the icon change? Just the text? Only date-related text? When collapsed only or all the time?
Please share any suggestions below in comments. What do you all think is the best way this should work?

This feature would be great... no need to add more columns... At the moment a due / over due subtask is marked with orange dot... or red dot The parent task has a blue folder icon. Maybe the folder colour could change in accordance with the over due --subtask status... and show the summary of the subtask's info... like the dot colour / due date / priority etc. Thus when a parent task is collapsed the folder icon shows the status of the subtask within the substructure. the use then knows that there is a task that needs attention... the red or orange parent folder alerts the user to open or expand the folder... to see what needs to be competed. Thus the parent act as nothing more than a summary of its sub tasks. I know some people want parent task to be independant of the subtask... thus maybe this could be a choice in the preferences box... like... "Do you want the parent task to inherit the subtasks behaviour or status?" thus the user could make this choice. Thank you for your attention.
as we progress in digital age ... I have changed my mind... why seperate tasks and appointments when a separate calander will be more efficient. thus just being able to put tasks into the calander ... as appointment ...in my mind and work flow... is good enough.
