If a todo has subtasks, this is indicated by a number instead of a checkbox.
The number shows the total number of subtasks and how many have been completed. 

Click the number to expand and view the subtasks.
Click the number again to collapse and hide the subtasks. 

Note about subtasks on the mobile apps: Click a todo to open it, and the subtasks will be displayed along with the other fields.
