Option to Mark Project and All Associated Tasks as Complete

Would you consider adding an option (a pop-up maybe) where the user can decide if they want all tasks to be marked complete when the project is marked complete? I know that we can use the mass actions to mark all tasks complete, but it would be nice to eliminate that step. Thanks for considering!

Hey everyone! Thanks for sharing this idea! Make sure to add your votes by clicking the "+" under the original post, this helps us gauge the popularity of the requests on the Community :) @Laura, as for the idea, I think this is interesting, and thank you for mentioning Mass Editing - that's what I was about to suggest. Just to clarify: do you think this pop-up should appear right when you change the status of a Project? Would everyone have the ability to perform this action?

Hi Anastasia! Thanks for your response. Yes, I could imagine that type of pop-up appearing when right when you choose "Completed", "On hold", or "Cancelled" for the status of a project.

Another option that would be useful is a selection in an individual's profile to, by default, change the status of all tasks in a project based on the status of the project. Something like:

Change status of all tasks in a project when project status is changed to:

     Completed

     On hold

     Cancelled

I would imagine that only the owner of the project could perform this action, but that's not critical. Am I making any sense? :-)

We use sub-projects within the larger project. These sub-projects are in a sense considered phases of the entire project. So I think it would be helpful if the opposite also happened. Once the last task within the sub-project is complete then it would pop-up to ask you if you want to mark the sub-project as complete. Therefore, we would be able to easily identify which projects are in which phase.
