Tasks: Prevent deleting a task if it still has active subtasks left
If I have a task that contains subtasks, I should not be able to delete it without a confirmation checking that I'm okay deleting it along with its unfinished subtasks.

Yes, also an alert if there's there's notes attached to it
Agree, I would like to be reminded about the subtask, and over due dates of these tasks. I might only need to finish parts of the task in a day to "complete" it. Now I always have to change the main date of the task to move it in the calendar instead of ticking it of.
This idea should also apply to Lists. You should not be able to delete List if there are tasks attached.
Please also add a confirmation (window) before deleting a task!
Too many times I accidentally deleted task.

I think another way to fix this is to simply display subtasks indented in the regular view.

Please add this.
I just had to create 5 similar task lists because there are different people who will be completing the same tasks, and you do not allow copying lists... and then I had do create everything as a "numbered task" because you do allow deleting of tasks without completing the corresponding sub tasks.
This is available in outliner app. just copy their’s! I deleted a task that had incomplete subtasks. Please fix this. Thank you.

Yes, please! Or maybe adding a markup to the tasks with subtasks so I can immediately see that there are still some subtasks left so I should check these out before completing the whole task.
Totally agree. And in a pop-up window of a complex task there should be button "subtask completed", linking you to the next window containing all the Subtasks of the chosen task, where you can stress or push completed ones.
for organization purposes the subtask feature is perfect, however it is very easy to overlook the subtasks since they are not required to be completed in order to check off a task,
If you were to simply not let a task be checked off until each sub task is checked off, I feel it would actually enhance the subtask presence and feature
for a project this is an absolutely necessary feature. please implement ist

Please, do. This is necessary for any disciplined guy that wants to split related tasks into subtasks of a more general one.

I totally agree with this point. At daily routine and project managment level we need to ensure all sub tasks are scheduled.. please provide this feature.

Allow reminder setup to individual sub-task(consider Installment plan) and mark parent task as completed only when all sub-task are completed.
- this is killer and easy feature beating project heavy tools
- eventually make it in settings as an option for end user
