when i e.g. do some brain storming and put all tasks in my "To Be Processed" folder, i want to organize in a second step all the tasks. Often i put subtasks to a main task and want to have all subtasks using the same folder as the main task. Therefore I need a kind of sync feature whenever an attribute on the main task is changed that all subtasks also changes autoamtically this attribute.
Is this possible or any workaround? Thanks for helping
This is one of the drawbacks of using a specific "To Be Processed" or "Inbox" folder.... the task will keep its folder when dragged to be a subtask. If you convert your TBP folder to "No Folder" , when you drag the task it will inherit the parent's folder.
The other option is to brainstorm in a note field (one subtask per line) and then cut and paste into the "Add Multiple Tasks" feature from Add Subtask.
Ah OK, thanks for this information. Folder is important not the only problem beside from your great workaround but eg when all my subtasks due on the same day it would be very convenient to change just the date of the Parent.
Oh, another workaround pops up in my mind: what about a quick search and perform a multi edit?? I will give it a try...
I use the star field for two purposes: 1) a quick way to get tasks onto my Hotlist and 2) a quick way to select items for multi-edit in Search. I have a saved search (Checked = No, Starred = Yes) for multi-editing.
