Subtasks duplication

I have 5 stages that populate various subtasks. If a user accidently goes back to a previous stage the subtasks auto populate again creating double tasks. How can I prevent this from happening?

Welcome, @Monica_Mapes,

Add one multi-select custom field to the project with one checkbox for each stage for which you add subtasks (really the same stages you have in your single select field, just as a separate, multi-select field.

Add one action for each of your existing rules to also check the corresponding checkbox when you add that stage’s subtasks.

Update each existing trigger to add an ANDed condition that the corresponding multi-select field’s stage checkbox must not be checked in order to trigger the action.

May I move this to another category so 500k more folks can benefit from this question and answer?



Absolutely, thank you!
