Automatically Generate Recurring Tasks? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Is there a way to automatically generate recurring tasks? Let me give you a scenario:

I sell stuff on eBay. When I get an email that something has been sold, I want to generate a series of tasks (ideally within its own project folder). The tasks are something like:

- Find item
- Print out shipping labels
- Box item
- Affix shipping label to box
- Drop item at post office

If I sell 10 items in a day (which isn't unheard of), there is a lot of repetition that I am doing. I'm sure someone has a better way of doing this because the idea of doing it manually for each item sold seems tedious and unnecessary.

Thanks for the help.
