I am Konstantina Service Owner for Planner at Siemens AG. Is it planned to offer nested / child sub tasks in Planner? The ability to drag and drop a task under another for creating a sub task would be highly welcomed. Thank you for your support and feedback.

Thank you for your input! I assume you are familiar with our checklist items, which can be used to create nested work items under a single task.
If I'm understanding correctly, your question seems almost more about creating links between full tasks (not just adding sub-items to a single task). Unfortunately, we don't have a great way to do that today. However, it is something we hear from users quite a bit, so it is something we hope to look into at some point! Something we use to prioritize is UserVoice. There is already an item in UserVoice related to this (and there may be others that aren't just about dependencies): https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/13976094-ad.... I'd recommend using this site to add your voices and votes to this feature!
If you have specific thoughts on this particular feature, we read through the UserVoice comments when we design and implement any new feature, so any thoughts you put there will be considered as we design this feature.
Let me know if you have any more questions or concerns about this! Thank you again for your input.

@Holly1 - The nested task option is great but it doesn't allow you to assign them to a person. Also creating individual cards for those tasks doesn't allow one to track progress towards the greater task at hand. Some form of linkage or hierarchical structure would make this much more usable.

@Si Meng It has been a year and a half since this thread started and the requested feature still isn't available. Any updates? For my business needs, not having this functionality really impedes my ability to use Planner without significant work-arounds.
