I love the new task templates, but when implementing them I had to copy/paste the original tasks I was using before LOADS of times. Because, when you convert it into a template, it then belongs to that project. And I use a template - with certain subtasks and collaborators - in a variety of projects.
Why not make any task template available for other projects than the ones they are created in? Add to library (just like with fields). Then you can add it quickly to X number of projects.
I would probably make it flexible too if you wanted to include the
- field values
of the library task when you add it to a project.
So, I make a template, add Lisa and Max as collaborators, a description, and 10 subtasks. I fill out the fields.
Then I enter a different project, I click add task template, and I select an option called “add from library”. Then I search and find the template.
Then I select which items I want to keep from the library template - I select the 10 subtasks, the description, and then maybe I de-select collaborators, because in this project I want John and Anna to be the collaborators. The fields automatically are added depending on which fields are present in this other project.
I think there are many interesting benefits from something like this.
