Oh hi, I'm back with more feedback.
I've encountered a weird inconsistency in how the task name prefix displays, depending on how the project is created.
When a project is created from a request form, the task name includes the prefix inside brackets, then a space, then the original task name.
However, when duplicating a project from the workspace (ie, right-clicking a project and selecting "Duplicate"), the task name will have the prefix (with no brackets), then a space, then the original task name.
Naturally, this just makes things more complicated when viewing tasks from multiple projects, because there will be two sets of alphabetized project lists (depending on whether the task name prefix included brackets or not).
What is the reason for this? Is it something that can be customized or made consistent?
