Rule for applying a Task Template Subtasks including the Description

I’d like to create a rule where:

trigger: when a new task is added
action: description and subtasks are applied from task template x

Anyone have a solve or workaround?


You can, with a single rule (not a task template), do all but affect the Description in the top-level task with:

  • Trigger: Task added to this project
  • Action: Create new subtasks

You can even specify the description of each subtask; it’s just that you can’t change the description of the already-existing top-level task.


Right, but I need to affect the Description in the top-level task… any solves?

@Heather_Johnson2, and can update task description, I believe, or a custom API app.
