Shift Dates in Task Templates
The task template export/import function is great. But, is there a way to get each of the dates in an imported project to shift at once, keeping their same relation, by just changing a final date? So, say you're going on a trip on April 20 very similar to one you took on Jan 20, and you're importing your trip-related tasks from the previous trip. It would be great if, just by changing the end date "Jan 20" to "April 20," each of the tasks shifted by 3 months, too. So instead of packing on Jan 19, it knows you should pack on April 19, etc.
Is that possible? If not, will it be someday?

Unfortunately, it's not possible right now. At least not automatically. Once you import your tasks, you can hold the CTRL key and then start selecting those that need a new due date. You can multi-select many tasks, then choose "Change date" from the menu at the top and add a new date to all selected tasks.
I also need this feature very much. An easy way to implement this would be be specifying relative due dates for the subtasks (number of days before the due date of the main task). When a main task (with subtasks) is then copied/cloned, the (relative) due dates of subtasks would not have to be manually changed.
I think this would be easy to implement and it would differentiate Todoist from other todo managers!
