Template tasks appear as live project tasks.

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:

When making an assignment in a template, the assigned task appears in the user’s task list as if it were a live project task. Obviously there is no actual task to complete until the template is used to create a project, so this should not happen.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a new template.
  • Create a task in the template.
  • Assign the task to a user.
  • View the user’s “My Task” list.

Browser version:

Chrome v 77.0.3865.90

Hi @RichardR and thanks for reaching out. This isn’t a bug but a current behaviour; when assigning tasks from templates to your colleagues, they will automatically show in their My Tasks. This is definitely something on our radar (and a popular request in the Forum, so if you haven’t yet, you can add your vote to: Project Template assigned tasks show up in My Tasks automatically). Until we come up with a better solution for this issue, I would recommend moving these tasks to the “Later” section of your My Tasks using the “Tab + L” shortcut.

Hope this helps, have a great weekend!
