The "__ days after the starting date of the created task list" setting in task list templates doesn't work for the function our company needs for one of our task list templates: generating tasks with a due date range of the week prior to our marketing meeting day, which is held on the first Tuesday of every month.
In other words, we would like to be able to set up this task list template so its tasks have a due date range of the previous week's Monday through the Monday before the Tuesday meeting.
As it currently works, we end up having to go in and set each task's due date manually after the task list is generated. I have a recurring task reminder on the 24th of each month to generate the task list for the meeting...and trying to find the "sweet spot" to enter for the number of days after the starting date of the created task list is time-consuming, and doesn't work more often than not, since the calendar date the marketing meeting falls on varies from month to month.
The option of setting "__ of days BEFORE specified due date" would be incredibly useful in general!
Allow for a task to be set up dependent upon a previous task in the templates instead of just in timeline. This would allow you to set a template that wouldn't have to be adjusted as much. This would be extremely beneficial for those in the real estate industry.
If we cannot add timeline dependencies to a task list template
Please allow us to copy task lists with options:
We invested some effort in creating multiple task lists for a project in one workspace. I know we can copy the workspace or individual task lists to new workspaces. But, can we copy or save a task list from a workspace to a task list template?
Task list - Have the option to update recently applied task list template after the template is updated
Probably a message will ask us if we would like to update the recently applied (used) task list template after updating the template.
If I'm looking a template task item, I'd like to be able to see that a comment has been submitted there. It may not be due for a week or more, and the comment may only be about this particular project (and doesn't need to go on the template itself). I can easily just check off the item as a standard task since I don't know that a comment has been left there.
I use the task list template a lot, but every time I need to manually change the duration of certain tasks. About half of the tasks are more than 1 day in duration, so it's rather time consuming to drag tasks in the timeline view, and it's more error prone.
Ability to import a single Template Task into an existing Task List in a Workspace.
Have you tried our import feature? https://redbooth.com/help/import-spreadsheet-excel-file/
We have Template Task Lists that have repetitive template tasks in them. Problem is, if we want to alter/improve upon those tasks, we must edit each and every one. It would be much easier to be able to "copy" them to make duplicates.
