Multihoming retriggers rule to add due date and priority


i have setup a custom rule, that if a new task is created in the project it automatically sets a default due date three days from the tasks creation and sets the priority to medium. This rule is part of our project template.
After creating a task and after the rule has been triggered I will pretty often change the due date to another day and also change the priority.
Problem is: If I now manually multihome the task to another project the rule to set the due date and the priority is retriggered form the other project and my changes are set back to due in three days and medium priority.
Is there any way to prevent this? Like “Only trigger this rule, if the task is new” or something?

Welcome, @Ralf_Hassel,

I think what you’d have to do is:

  • Create a “New Rule Run?” single-select custom field with one value: :heavy_check_mark:
  • Trigger this rule with an added (ANDed) condition: Custom field “New Rule Run?” is not set
  • Add another action: Set “New Rule Run?” to :heavy_check_mark:

This will effectively implement a “flag” to ensure the rule only runs once per task.
