Suggestion for an account-level setting: Give users the choice of auto-assigning header-level role to checklist items beneath it.
User experience behind request: when I filter my weekplan by role "Project Manager", my header-level tasks show up, but the checklist items beneath them do not. So using the "filter by role" results in me having my checklists hidden. It's counter-intuitive for me to get blank checklists on my tasks.
I use the checklist a lot, and my checklist tasks always roll up to the header task's role. Adding a role to each checklist item as they create them is onerous and time-consuming for users like me.
I recognize some users may have a header-level task with checklist items assigned to different roles, which is why I suggest an account-level setting allowing users to toggle between "auto-assign role to checklist tasks" and "manually assign role to checklist tasks".
