Clear data in recurring tasks

I think the answer is “no,” but is there a way to set up a recurring task that uses a task template?

Right now, I have a regular recurring task to create a task from a task template – a bit convoluted.

This would be super helpful, since regular recurring tasks generate a copy based on the previously completed one. So if you make any alterations the new task is created with all the same alterations. (I’ve been struggling with this too since every time the new task generates I have remembers to erase the old data.) It would be fantastic to have the recurrent task in its original form each time!

Hi @Adam-Involute, thanks for providing this feedback!

While this feature isn’t available right now, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:

Exactly the issue. Same with attachments, I believe – those persist with regular recurring tasks. Using recurring task templates would provide a clean slate each time.

My particular case is for payroll processing: we have a ~6 steps (subtasks) that involve 2-3 people, repeats every 2 weeks, and I don’t want the previous task’s information to copy / recur because that’s ripe to create errors.
