Can Tasks Inherit Due Dates from Projects? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I searched the forums and saw a few threads about inherited dates, but I didn't see an answer that fits my question exactly.

I want to be able to create a project whose due date is automatically picked up by the tasks under that project. Thus far, I can't figure out how to do that. When I create a project with a due date, and then create tasks in that project, it looks as though I have to put in due dates manually for each task. Maybe this isn't really all that important, and maybe I'm misunderstanding how due dates ought to work in GTD.

My example: I am a professor and I have to get syllabi ready for the fall. All the syllabi have to be completed by the first day of classes. So, I have a project called "Syllabi" with a due date of August 23. All of the tasks are my different syllabi, so all of them will have to be due by August 23, though obviously I will get some done before others.

Perhaps the tasks inherit the due date but it just doesn't show up in the column view of the tasks?
