Hi,

 

Does anyone know if you can bulk insert a task into approx. 40 project templates?

 

Thanks

Hi Doug,

 

Thanks for your suggestions. TBH, I feel the manual approach work out to be the quicker option, but I will look at the Kick Start as a learning as that seems interesting.

 

Thanks again,

Matt

Hi @MattWindsor,

 

Although it might be faster to do it manually, I invite you to consider using a Kickstart to push in your Task to the 40 existing Templates (e.g. by copying the Task 40 times, and changing the appropriate templateID for each, "connecting" them to their respective Templates); and possibly their parentTaskID and/or predecessors, too...hmm...the more I think about it, that manual option is looking even more attractive.

 

More interestingly, though, in my opinion...

 

Once you do have the new tasks added, if you then want to add those tasks to the in-flight Projects that were based upon those Templates, you can then easily and efficiently do so using our Sync Template solution, which we developed for such Continuous Template Improvement usecases.

 

I'd be happy to discuss the latter further via email at doug.denhoed@atappstore.com.

 

Regards,
Doug
