Is there a Mac to-do-list allowing a task-tree (task hierarchy)? I just looked at "things" but found it only has "projects" and "tasks".

Any ideas what else can do the trick? (it also needs to have basic shortcuts)

I´m not sure whether you want to create a tree or just a linear sequence of tasks; anyway I guess you might want to check out OmniFocus which has sequential tasks as an option. – Asmus Apr 9 '11 at 14:55
Any other requirements or would OmniOutliner actually suffice? – Daniel Beck Apr 9 '11 at 16:28
Consider accepting one of the answers, or adding additional requirements that aren't satisfied by any of these programs. – Daniel Beck May 22 '11 at 13:25

TaskCoach will do what you're looking for, and there is a Mac version available.

Thanks afrazier. Do you have experience with it? I wonder if it is better then the software I currently use on windows (todolist) – Tal Galili Sep 20 '11 at 22:38
AbstractSpoon's ToDoList? I don't really have deep experience with either one, so I can't really comment on whether one is "better" than another. What I think you'll find is that they're comparable but different. – afrazier Sep 21 '11 at 14:30

I'm not 100% sure, because I don't use it myself, but I think The Hit List supports subtasks. It's mentioned in this article which compares some Mac task list programs.

I am not sure exactly what you require but maybe you should look at Tree. Its an outliner that allows you to view the outline vertically or horizontally. I used it occasionally in the past. Is this what you are looking for?

SlingPlan is a product of ours that may help with what you're looking for, we created the product.

Every screen, feature, and function within SlingPlan emerged from our customers "Wouldn't it be nice" list. On each page within SlingPlan exists two important icons: a direct link to the pages help video, and a support and suggestion feature to let us know how to adapt SlingPlan.COM to your needs. This is your tool, and it should do what you need, no matter how big or how small.

Instead of marketing copy (a.k.a. fluff), it'd be more helpful/appropriate if you posted a screenshot or described the tree list feature (I can't really tell that there is one from the website). – Lèse majesté Mar 19 '12 at 16:11
