Better Task Editing Features in Gantt View - Insert, Copy, Paste

It's very frustrating to work with tasks in Gantt view.  It would be nice to be able to do basic editing features:

  • Multi-select Tasks and then:
  • Copy/Duplicate
  • Paste/Insert
  • Insert New Tasks above highlighted task
  • Delete

When you have a large and complex schedule, scrolling to the bottom of the task list to hit the + to add tasks is super irritating especially to then have to move the newly created tasks all the way back up the list.  If you could just insert new tasks, it would save a tone of time and effort.

Likewise, copy and paste/insert one or multiple tasks would also be terrific.  I have a list of tasks that is done several times within a project, and having to recreate each instance is really rediculous.

Couldn't have said it better myself! I struggle with this too.

Oh my goodness yes! I'm just starting to investigate Wrike as a potential solution and this is already a major pain point as I lay out my project. 

You can already click-drag to elongate a task duration and click-drag to create a dependency, why not just go the extra mile to be able to duplicate, insert, rename, or whatever right on the Gantt chart?  It is a much, MUCH better way to visually design a project scaffold.

It would be better in every way possible.

Agreeing with the point already made! New Wrike using and already discovering some challenges with tasks development, especially in the Gantt Chart view. It makes it a bit cumbersome to have to flip back and forth between views just to do basic editing like duplicating (and duplicating multiple tasks at once), and inserting new tasks right where you need them in the Gantt view.

I'm justing testing this out, this is a MAJOR DEAL BREAKER.  This needs to be easier to copy several lines of tasks and insert them as a whole with just a few clicks so that it is easier to edit and speed up the process.
