Duplicate multiple selected tasks and offer a new location

I would like to see a solution that offers the possibility to duplicate multiple selected tasks within in a project in one "go".

Currently I need to do that in our template folder one by one...not really time saving.

It would be great if that feature would work like the "duplicate projects" function and would ask me also for a new location of this task,

Hi Jörn, always great to see your ideas here! Thanks for sharing this one, I think that option sounds useful. Do you see this as something which could potentially be available from the Mass Editing panel?

Hi Anastasia,

 

 I believe it would be more helpful to have that in the context menu per right mopuse click or in the sidebar, see below

YES! This is what I need. It could be available in the mass edit panel and the right click menu as well. If you have multiple tasks selected they will all be duplicated. Voted on this, it would save me so much time!

Also, as an added suggestion, the ability to duplicate subtasks to another task that already exists would helpful instead of just having them duplicate to the parent folder as regular tasks.

We would also really like to see this functionality. 

As well as being able to add multiple tasks from within the Request forms. 

It would be fantastic to be able to build a project out of specific tasks from the Request Form builder. And have the dropdown questions link to tasks. 

Ie - Pick a task to add to this project

The dropdown would have a list to pick from, and each would be linked to a specific task in wrike.

Agreed the feature is needed, and it should be available, at least, from the Mass Edit panel.

Yes, can we please, please, please have the ability to duplicate multiple tasks at one time? I often have to duplicate 10+ tasks at a time, and to do it individually is incredibly slow and tedious. 

We also really need the ability to select the new task status when duplicating. 

THANKS SO MUCH!!!

This seems incredibly basic.  Really can't quite get why this functionality was not included out of the box.

Hi all,


I have a workaround for this since it seems they aren't going to add this obviously necessary and SUPER BASIC feature.

Create Project "TASKS TEMPLATE" - add your desired tasks.

Duplicate Project "TASKS TEMPLATE" and rename it "TASKS TEMPLATE 2"

Select all Tasks in TASKS TEMPLATE 2

A menu should come up on the right (or it may require a right-click after multiple task selection).  Anyhow, see screenshot for this one.

Choose MOVE TO and then choose the Project you want these tasks moved to.

Delete TASKS TEMPLATE 2 (and keep original TASKS TEMPLATE for future use)

Kelly - this is a super helpful tip! Hopefully we will hear something from the developers soon on this feature.

I think adding (duplicate to) in mass editing to copy or duplicate multiple task from a project to another would be great.

Hi Julien Thiery, thank you for posting. Unfortunately, this suggestion is not planned in the short-term roadmap of the Product team, similar to this Product Feedback request here

At the moment, the workaround to this is to use the mass edit option and move the tasks to the other location as described above. Please let me know if you have any questions.
