Soon it will be 2018 and still the feature is unavailable. Makes me wonder where is the support in this case?
Add WBS ID field to track/indicate tasks relationship
In other Scheduling tools, there is a WBS ID which is very helpful in determining parent/child relationships; while Clarizen has an ID field to uniquely identify tasks and projects, it does not provide the ability to see relationships; see example below:
Other Scheduling Tools
1 Deliverable 1
1.1 Task 1
1.2 Task 2
1.3 Task 3
2 Deliverable 2
2.1 Task 1
2.2 Task 2
2.3 Task 3
T-101 Deliverable 1
T-102 Deliverable 1, Task 1
T-103 Deliverable 1, Task 2
T-104 Deliverable 1, Task 3
T-105 Deliverable 2
T-106 Deliverable 2, Task 1
T-106 Deliverable 2, Task 2
In the first example you can see the numbering scheme allows to know which tasks belongs to which subproject/deliverable and is useful in validating outline/hierarchies are correctly structured as well as just general reference. Without it, PMs have to carefully craft task descriptions (as I did ) so one will know which summary/,milestone item it belongs. Analysis or testing are good examples of tasks that me be repeated for a variety of milestones and without the WBS ID it's difficult to know to which it belongs.

Yes, I'd also like to see a revealed WBS field for projects.
