    Hi Sean Garcia, welcome to the Community! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for your feedback here, it will be passed on to the Product Team. I also wanted to mention that part of what you're describing already exists - you can reschedule tasks inside projects:

    Please let me know if this helps and thanks again for your feedback!

    Hi Lisa,

    This ONLY works if you are duplicating at the FORM level. Our department serves many different functional categories including Website, Social Media, Email, Creative Design, Paid Digital Advertising, etcโ€ฆand many different work types within those categories. It is obviously untenable to create forms for every possible work type request and Duplicating a pre-built project/task at the overall form level is the only way to reschedule timelines based on form inputs. Since we cannot ask our stakeholders to go through a list of 30+ forms, we must assign Blueprint Sub-Projects, Tasks, and Sub-Tasks at the QUESTION level within the form. We get dozens of work requests per week and manually adjusting all dates within each request leaves the user feeling no benefit of automation. I don't believe that anyone prefers that stock dates from Blueprints be used inside of a new project with specific start and end dates. If the functionality could be adjusted to align start and end dates to the HIGHEST level rather than the inverse option that is currently available in Wrike Lab I think it would be universally beneficial.

    Thank you for sharing more details about your suggestion here.
     
    Would conditional request form questions help you with this? This allows you to choose which folder / project a submission should go to based on what answers the users give. This way, you could assign submissions to different categories, without having to duplicate forms for each possible category.
     
    Let me know if this helps. If you need any further assistance, feel free to reach out at any time.
