Auto Alignment of Subtask and Status

It would be extremely helpful to have the "Auto Align subtasks" feature to be an 'enable' option instead of having to agree to it on a subtask-by-subtask basis. The benefit is recognized enough to know that users may need it, but it would be better to not have to agree to it each and every time.

Thanks

Comparing it to MS Project it is the difference between "Auto" and "Manual". In MS Project you can select for each task if it should move automatically if predecessors change dates or only manually. Write doesn't seem to have this option, resulting in the popup. If one only adjusts one or two tasks in a gantt then that is fine. But if you try to manage a program with several dozen tasks the pop-up approach is not practical at all and leaves a lot of room for errors in the program.

Personally, I consider this a small change to the code with very high impact for the users - i.e. low hanging fruits for the dev team.

I absolutely second this and have been looking for a way to do exactly this for 30 minutes. I can't seem to find a way to force the subtask alignment, if I don't get a pop-up. The ability to turn this on/off would be crazy helpful.

Without auto-alignment, the subtasks function seems useless. every time I try to use it, it just creates unintended errors, frustration, and wasted time to readjust them. 😔 Hope this very basic feature can be incorporated soon.
