We are creating a lot of templates for highly routine work, and in each of those templates there may be three or four people assigned – for example when we roll out a programme at a new property. Is it possible to assign people to tasks in a template but not have it go live / not have it kick off into their work streams until we duplicate the template and actually start the project? Otherwise they will also have This would save us having to reassign tasks every time we start?
It's helpful to have dates assigned in our dormant templates, and then (if they are dependent) we can just change the start date, it all cascades through. However if we have a dormant template with dates assigned, and we assign people’s names, it is going to show up in their work stream / in their analytics as overdue. So it would seem that to avoid this we either have to avoid assigning people, or we have to avoid having dates – both of which mean we have more work each time we want to duplicate a template?
