Label Inheritance?


Is there a way to set my preferences such that a new sub-task created underneath an existing task automatically has the same tags/labels as the task it's subsidiary to? I'd like to have this option at the project, sub-project, task, and sub (sub-sub-etc) task levels.

I still want to be able to *change* the labels if I choose to -- add non-inherited labels or remove inherited labels -- but the default would save me a bit of typing and the risk of creating labels via typo.

(I'm using Todoist on the web and on my android devices.)

Hi Michele,

Unfortunately, there are no ways to accomplish this at the moment, but we will of course consider adding such options in future updates.

Feel free to add it to our Votebox. http://todoist.com/Vote/

Please implement project labels and priorities, and inheritance of these. It would save me so much time. I've tried using templates to mimic inheritance, but it isn't a very good workaround.
