Adding task with due date changes view


Hi there,

At the beginning of a project I usually add a batch of tasks to the same project. Those tasks usually have attached due dates (e.g. deadlines).

When adding multiple tasks to a project I usually enter the project view so when pressing "add new task" the project is immediately set correctly. However, when I add a due date and press save, I am immediately pulled out of my project perspective and I see a list of tasks at the particular date. At this moment, the interface also "forgets" the project I was adding tasks and they usually end up in my "Inbox". (I usually move my tasks from the Inbox to their respective projects when I'm done adding the batch.)

Is there a way to prevent this viewchange? In other ways: Is there a way to "lock" my view to a certain project when adding multiple tasks with due dates?

Alternatively I could just add my batch to the inbox and mass move them to a different project. It would just, in my opinion, feel more natural the other way around.

If you want to add multiple tasks to one project, please don't use the "Quick Add" option at the top, but instead click on "+ Add task" at the bottom of the task list in this project. This way the view won't change and you can add tasks even faster and easier.
