you may group this in this way in evolution and it gets indeted. quite a
good feature :). at work i group by due time and then category (which i
use for customer). i then sort by status and priority. this shows me a
rather useful list of tasks. but the calender-task-view and the summary
(!!!) do not use my sort options, so these views are totally unusable.

You can? How? (I'm not doubting you - I just can't see how to do it!)
Say my To-Do list (in my text editor) looks like this (real-life

(This is only a tiny fragment of my current to-do list. the actual one
is really long, and in many cases the task are heavily nested. It's just
too embarrassing to reproduce that material for all of you to see!) It
looks like I'd have to create a special category for each task that has
a sub-task (most of which would never be repeated again) and even then I
don't see how to get indenting in the Tasks display. Am I missing
something obvious? (If you've got this working nicely, and your tasks
aren't too embarrassing for public consumption like mine are, could you
send me - not the list - a screenshot?)
