Task Templates: Offer subtask dependencies

Use Case:
We have a project that we use as our content calendar. All published content (each content piece is a task) must go through a series of reviews and other sub-tasks that are dependent on subtasks under this same task. When I create a task and accompanying subtasks, then create subtask dependencies, then convert this task into a task template, the subtasks dependencies do not cary over to the task template. I would vote for subtask dependencies on task templates to be a solution here. As a work around, right now, we are just not using task templates and instead we are duplicating the task and allowing for dependencies to be copied in the duplication.

The task is named: News Article Title ABCDEFG
The subtasks are:
Create Content Draft
Select Featured Image
Edit Audio File (dependent on Create Content Draft)
Approve (Dependent on Edit Audio File)

Love this! This would be so helpful

I would also like to see this. I’ve had to manually change all the dependencies which didn’t transfer when converting the task to a template.


Exactly the same use case…

We have created a host of templates for content production tasks

They include both approvals and dependencies within the subtasks

As these are all within the subtasks, it would be good to be able to use the task templates feature, rather than having to create tasks with a status of ‘Template’ that we copy from.

Yes! This is something that is lacking with the templates - would improve workflow a lot better… Especially in the case of awaiting a review! Please consider this change :slight_smile:
