Task Templates Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have certain actions that I do regularly, that have multiple stages to them. Is there any way to create a sort of "template" that can add sub-tasks to a task when it's created?

So, I can create a task that says, "Integrate domains with subelement window". Under it, I'd like to create, "Add notice to changelog", and, "Write documentation". For every action that I add via the "code" template, these separate actions that are always required would be added. ... because if I'm doing many such things, I might forget to do note one change, etc, and can later pull up everything in the "changelog" context when I'm going over it. Etc.

Oh, interesting. I'll check that out. Thanks!
 
Curt's script works very well. I use it frequently.
 
It does work well, but it's not what I'm looking for; I was looking more for "action groups" then creation of a project. I work more in "compound tasks", which may not be a GTD thing-- but oh well-- but makes sense in my mind. I don't want them to be a Project, as they're /in/ projects.

I might have one small change to do; to make it into a project breaks my brain. But as a result of the one small thing, there's two (sometimes three, in a different type of template) subsequent small things I have to do after. So they logically, in my mind, fit 'under' that original task.

Additionally, clicking on the template-project in the project view, then the clone button, then having to move it to where it should be, is a lot of work and means I can't use Quick Entry. Which I love.

I was more thinking I could Quick Entry something, then later when I'm in the inbox sorting a bit, I could have a button that adds these sub-tasks to what I have selected.

Hm. I might try to AppleScript it myself. I suck at AppleScript, but maybe I can tear into Carl's to get ideas on how to work it :)
