Hi all 👋,

I heard that many people would love to duplicate their projects and keep subtasks as subtasks. Unfortunately, at the moment, the subtasks detach and have to be manually attached. (Learn more here how to re-attach tasks).

For example: So, I would like to use a project as a template. However, when I duplicate a project, the subtasks detach from the project and appear as independent tasks.

If you share the enthusiasm for this then please share and engage with this feature request: upvote it, and share your insights, needs, and pains in the new thread, and speak up there.

    Yes please! My job involves doing the same project over and over again for different clients. I love the subtask feature but I do need the subtasks to stay attached when I duplicate my template!

    The impossible does not exist! The solution has just not been found yet!

    That would be great.

    As I mentioned, we don't use subtasks as much as we would like, because we need to duplicate some tasks. So either we use a separat project or checklists.
