Copy subtasks across all tasks in a repetition

Unable to edit recurring tasks.
If I add a subtask to a recurring task, it isn't added to the other future instances of the task. I'd like ot have a task that has subtasks that I do every day. When I add a subtask to that task, it only appears for that day, not to be repeated in the future. This might have a benefit so not sure if this is a bug or a feature.

I love weekplan over all. The idea of checking to make sure I'm working on the right thing and this way of doing it is powerful.

We believe that there is an advantage on not repeating the subtasks, like if your task is shopping. As work around, you can create your subtasks in the Notes area using the following sample:
- task1
- task2

Doing so will create a list in your Notes accordingly. Hope this helps, UlliJ!

Well, it would have been advantageous to me.

Me too. Is there any chance you could leave this open as a suggestion for people to vote on? It would be helpful if it was an option that you could choose rather than having it dictated to you.

I have changed this item to being a suggestion so that we can receive votes on it.

Maybe search for the topic titled "Copy subtasks across all tasks in a repetition" and add your vote to that! It says something similar

Making it optional per task would be ideal.

Yes, please! I'm in my first week of using Week Plan and have already run into this issue. Please allow repetitive subtasks/checklists. I'm really enjoying Week Plan and would like to keep using it. Thank you!

I tried creating a list in my notes as suggested, but the markup is breaking in the repeated tasks. So, the workaround doesn't work. Maybe there is a bug to fix?


Also, I'm not proficient with markup and having to learn it for my new productivity tool is well, not productive.

Thanks!

Any movement on this? Will it be in v2?
