Adding Task Prefix to multiple tasks after template duplication

I would like to see a feature where I can add the prefix text to tasks after the tasks are duplicated, I have a situation where the prefix cannot be added during duplication because each project will have a different internal ID number. My template structure is a folder and within the folder are projects and within projects tasks, The whole folder gets duplicated, but each project will get a different internal ID number. I need a way to go into the individual projects, select all tasks and in 1 step add the prefix to all. Currently im having to click on each task individually and paste in the project ID number

This would be useful for me too. I have a project that is about 180 tasks. When I duplicate it from a template, I choose a prefix that will go at the beginning of each task and folder. However, sometimes there are situations where I later need to change the prefix but don't want to re-do it from the template because we're well into the project. It would be very nice to not have to do this manually. Thanks!

This has been a big issue for us and is way too time consuming.  This has been a major block to getting staff buy-in to using Wrike.
