Parent/child hierarchy disappears on the report


When I build a report the parent & child hierarchy from the sheet doesn't pull across, is there a way to make this happen please?

    Hi @Jen Payne

    You can add a helper column for level in your main sheet then you can use the grouping in a report by level column.

    use the following formula to define the level in the helper column

    =IF(COUNT(CHILDREN(Task@row)) > 0, COUNT(ANCESTORS()) + 1)

    I've added that column and copied the formula. It works for the first parent child hierarchy but any children under that do not display properly (or as in the sheet).

    That's probably more due to my knowledge around IF formulas!! Thanks you for your help.
