How could we improve Flow?

Bulk duplication (tasks and sections)

The various jobs (or projects in Flow-speak) that we work on could have anywhere from 1 to up to 50 pieces (or sections) with the same steps (or tasks). I’ve made a template for a project with one generic section but would love to be able to copy the section and tasks in that section.

        Allow an entire of section of a project to be duplicated.

        For my example, we have multiple locations and we need to make the same changes at all locations. Instead of creating a separate project for each, we're tracking with 1 project, and each location is their own section. We'd like to duplicate the section to copy the same tasks to each section.

        Cyrus - It would be a great feature to be able to duplicate a Task and or set up a template for sub-tasks. When can this feature be integrated as it seem many other folks are having the same issue and making purchasing decisions based on the sheer redundancy of having to generate these tasks / subtasks all over again.

        Hi Becky, if your projects have so many moving pieces, it might make sense to move down a level in your planning. Make the pieces tasks (instead of sections) and their steps subtasks (instead of tasks) and you may have a much more manageable setup. This would also be much easier to duplicate.
