Convert task to project, then leave task as a task within project

We have a project called “New Enquiries” where all sales leads go, each task has details of the client and the steps taken to convert it into a live project (e.g client meeting and phone call sub tasks).
When the task is converted and moved to a new team we would like to keep the original task as a task at the top of the new project so all the info is more readily available.
I can do this manually by going back to “New Enquiries” and making the greyed-out task back into a task and then moving project, but can this be automated?
Thanks,
Rob.

HI @Rob_Nabney :wave: Thank you for reaching out!

What a great question! Unfortunately, I believe that the only way to achieve this is by manually adding the task following the steps you have explained.

Please note that when converting the task into a project, the task description is converted into the project description. This could be very useful to have all the important information about the Project in its details.

Have a great day Rob! Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!

Just checking if there has been any update on this in the last year.

We have a project for “Requested Projects” where we use the task form to capture enough information to help us vet and prioritize the project. When a project is green-lit, we use the “convert to a project” feature, however, the initial task is marked complete and very hard to find on the new project. Is there anyway to either use “Convert to a Project” where the original task is not marked as complete, OR, is there a way to write a rule to unmark the task as complete when using “Convert to a Project”?

Thanks!
