This is a test of the subtask and Blocking Tasks features.
I created a subtask in T594 for the Friday user group meeting.
This subtask is ticketed as T604 and designated as Blocks T594, but shows up on the project board as a separate task apart from T594 in the Backlog column. This doesn't seem to be a natural or intuitive way to organize or track the subtask.
Any ideas or suggestions?

What would you expect instead? Please let me now so I can understand better the problem you are finding. The current behavior seems natural and intuitive to me... :) A subtask is still a task, just like in Bugzilla blocking bug reports are still bugs on its own.

Yes, a subtask is still a task.
I was expecting a hierarchy display, subtasks under the main task. Right now we have quite a number of tasks that should have subtasks, and I thinking of ways to keep the project board neat and easy to understand as more information is added.

I think the difference here between bugzilla dependencies and subtasks is primarily one of visualisation. Phabricator does a much better job with the workboard than Bugzilla does of helping an individual's workflow. Perhaps this is an issue that we need to file upstream -- it would be good if you could display tasks that have subtasks as a stack of cards that you could click on to expand for that particular parent task.
