I use the duplicate function to create repetitive tasks but I don’t see an option to control whether the status gets copied over.
Here’s my workflow:
- Find an example task (i.e. completed task)
- Duplicate to create a new task (almost identical other than name, due date, minor details)
- Find the new task has the old task’s status (complete)
- Uncheck the new task so that it shows up as incomplete
My previous workflow consisted of having a template task with an incomplete status, but found that I had to keep modifying the task to keep it current so this newer methodology seems to result in less work (except for having to change the status).
Any suggestions on a better workflow or is there a not so obvious “status” flag I can set when duplicating tasks? If not, I’d like to suggest this as a feature request.
Thanks in advance
