I feel an enhancement here is very important, at least an option to suppress task notifications in templates. In our workflow, we have a template projects with many, many tasks in them, and it is confusing and distracting for users to have those tasks and deadlines show up in their task list, when it’s not from an actionable project, but rather just the template.
With the recent feature of adding relative dates to templates, having deadlines and assignees in templates makes so much sense. Except for this issue — which makes working with templates confusing.
I am aware of using the Later attribute to hide tasks in My Tasks, but it’s a pain to communicate that to everyone every time a template is created. It’s kind of a hack.
