Thanks for the update!

I am a bit confused here: Task templates are not created when you launch a project from a template, right? Or does this update refer to task templates and tasks in project templates at the same time?

Hi @Martin_Brandenburg, thanks for reaching out! We have recently launched some enhancements for task templates. This includes a new option that allow you to carry over task templates when you duplicate a project or create a new project from a template. It works similar as if you create a project from a Template and you have Rules in your Template, all Rules will be copy over your new project :slight_smile:


Hey Emily! I wanted to reach out because I am seeing the option to add dependencies into my templates, however, when I try to add one, nothing populates. It says “no matches found in this template.” I have tried this with multiple tasks on multiple different templates and none of them seem to be working. Do you know why this would be? Thanks in advance!

Task templates are a great feature, but is there a way to add a subtask to a project in a template task?

We use it like this - main task (one project) subtask (different project dependent on a task-specific use).

There is - it’s not visible but you can use the Tab-P shortcut key to do it.


Thank You @Phil_Seeman . It works! Gamechanger for me thank You, very much!
