Recurrent Tasks can't template from 'base' task, limited formatting and unable to parent sub tasks
The current 'Recurring Tasks' (which I love and forever grateful for) are limited and do not have the functionality of 'actual' tasks.
I think of Recurrent Tasks as 'repeating a template' however, the formatting and sub tasks of the original tasks do not flow through to the recurrent instances. Instead you need to put in a task heading, then make it recurrent, then build out the task description again with a limited formating tool and no ability to add sub tasks
Frustratingly - you can 'copy' a task and everything (except assignees) get's copied from the original 'template' (including sub task and folders etc). That's just super until you have to copy tasks hourly, daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly across hundreds of projects. (which is why I do LOVE recurrent tasks)
I'm curious to understand the thinking here, and to see this feature fleshed out and developed as it is my core reason for using Wrike.
Is it possible for Recurrent Tasks to copy the 'template' task (including sub tasks) into the required schedules?
Hi Cate, thanks for posting this here! At the moment subtasks aren’t included to task recurrences, but it’s an interesting idea and I appreciate such a detailed description. Your requests help spark the conversations about future product enhancements with our Product Team and estimate the popularity of each request.
Here’s a couple of posts about Recurrent tasks that you might find interesting, it would be great if you could add your votes there too:

I have to agree that this would be a valuable add. Many of the processes/tasks/subtasks that we perform are repeatable. Having the ability to make a repeatable task template - including subtasks - would be a valuable function to our operation.
Hi Brian Patrick, welcome to the Community!
Recurrent tasks updates are currently not on the short-term roadmap. We're passing all your feedback to the team all the same. Thanks a lot for sharing!
