    Hi everyone, I really like this idea, I can definitely see it's benefits and I'll be sure to pass it to the Product Team for review and report back with any new information.

    I've been thinking ofย some workarounds that might help.

    If you know the Custom Field values at the point you're creating the parent task, you canย duplicate the parent taskย and choose toย copy the Custom Field Values. Then convert this duplicated task as aย subtask of the parent.ย Take a look at the below. I understand it's pretty manual but perhaps it might come in helpful for now.

    ย 

    Duplicate theย task and include Custom Field values in the duplication options.



    Then drag and drop the duplicated task so it becomes a subtask of the parent. The task becomes a subtask and keeps the Custom Field values from the original parent task.

    Hi

    We are using request form andย this will save us a lot of time.

    Customers are filling the request form and we have some questions related to custom fields.

    Then each PM need to fill the custom fields again. This is not optimal.

    The custom fields of tasks of a project or subtask of a task are mostly the same. So it will be faster to have the same data and change one or 2 different custom fields then putting everything again.ย

    I agree. I would like a Task to be able to automatically inherit the Custom Field values that are specified in the parent Project. Copying/pasting or going back to the Parent project to get the necessary values is not efficient, and is prone to errors, and is frustrating since you can see the blank Custom Fields at the Task level and you know the data exists at the Project level.

    Agreed, this would be a great feature to set as a default, unless the user does designate different field selections within the subtask. So if subtask fields are blank, then inherit parent task's fields in reporting. If any subtask fields are completed, then those should be reported on.ย  Please :)

    This feature would be useful for my team, as well. We use request forms that populate custom fields at the project level but that are also needed at the task/subtask level. Having the option to auto-populate customs fields to all tasks would be very helpful.
