Automation of changing the status of a master task when either: A subtask is started (change the master task to “In Process”) and/or All subtasks are complete (change the master task to “Complete”).

Hi!  First of all, thank you for listening to our feedback and trying to implement so many of our enhancement requests. 

And now for our enhancement requests 🙂 We'd like the option to some way to automate changing the status of a master task when either:

  1. A subtask is started (change the master task to “In Process”)
  2. All subtasks are complete (change the master task to “Complete”).

1. I would think that if you start working on a subtask, that would indicate that the parent task is then active, and therefore should be changed to an active status. (We understand that technically Queued is an Active status but it would be really nice to have the option of having an actual Queued status, where it is not inactive, but is ready to be active, if that makes sense.) 

2. We understand that when you complete the Parent Task, you get a suggestion to complete all its Subtasks as well.  However, if we are mass editing tasks, which we do frequently, then that option does not populate. Inbox notifications are helpful if you are only working on a few projects, but, again, we have been doing a lot of mass updates, so those clog our inboxes instead.

I chatted with your support team, which is always very friendly and dependable, but they didn't have any other ideas.  If there's something else you'd recommend, we'd love to hear it.😁

Automatical change of task status according to it's subtask will be great feature.

Rules for this could be set in administration in the section Workflows, so it will suits to custom workflows either.

I was just looking to see if this was a current feature as I need this functionality right now so I agree that this is a necessary addition.
