Copy tasks from one project to another


I would love to be able to copy tasks from one item to another. For example: I have my tasks sorted mostly by projects. Which works GREAT! But then I also have my weekly update with my boss as a project. Each week I start a new task for that update and create sub tasks for each thing I wish to discuss with him. I do not need to discuss my entire list with him, only select items. So I end up creating tasks to associate with that weekly meeting that are the same as tasks on my list (but they don't have a due date as I just mark the meeting complete and they all go away after the meeting). I would love to be able to just have an option for copying a task from one project to another. Is there a way to do that?

Hello Ronna,

Although you can't copy a single task between projects, you can prepare a task list in a project, then click on the tools icon (wrench and pencil) at the top (when in this project) and use "Export as template". You'll get a TXT file containing the tasks from this project.

Now, you can go to another project and use "Import from template" to add all tasks from this TXT file at once.

Best regards,

Will Todoist be introducing a copy task/project feature in the near future?

Simply create a label @F2F or something alike for the face to face meetings with your Boss. Why duplicating items?
