I want to create a template for a recurring tasklist that sits inside a group of other tasks. If I change the template then the recurring tasklist updates in all instances. Is this possible?
Here's a simple example.
Say you have a workflow that contains a list of tasks - say it's everything that you need to do before you travel for a conference. The tasks with subtasks could look like: two months out - checking visa and travel documents, one month out - research tasks for conference, one week out - notifying neighbours and preparing to leave home, one day out - pack bag, close up home.
Say you travel a lot and have 4 copies of this workflow for 4 separate conferences in the next 3 months.
Now you want to add a new item (eg. Aspirin) to your "pack bag" list. Ideally this would be a master task template that you would update and it would be reflected in every one of the 4 instances above. Right now I'm manually updating each workflow, four times.
It's not a recurring workflow, which implies that only one instance is open at a time.
Is there a task template? If not what is the best workaround?
