Auto Refresh on Tasks/Subtasks

I have a task with 5 subtasks. This task is a daily recurrence, but the subtasks don't refresh. So if I forget to check of sub #4 & 5, or the parent task upon completion by midnight, it doesn't refresh when I look at it today, and I then have to click complete, and then move the task the day after today, back to today.

Example: Task: I need to drink 10 cups of water a day
Subtask 1: 1 cup
Subtask 2: 2 cups
Subtask 3: 3 cups

Today, on Monday, I check off Subtasks 1 & 2, but forget to on 3. On Tuesday, I go to my list, and see I only have #3 to complete. I check that box, and it moves the task to the next day after I check the parent task.

Two questions: 1.) Is there a way to auto-refresh the subtasks, even if not completed the day prior? 2.) Is there a way that the subtasks upon completion automatically mark the parent task as completed?

Currently, neither of these options is available, but we will consider adding them in the future.

For now, as a workaround, if the parent task doesn't need to be completed, you could either not give it a date at all, or instead of sub-tasks use separate parent tasks, each due "every day".
