Copy tasks between Plans in Planner
Published May 14 2018 01:27 PM 45.6K Views

Hello!

 

This may be a controversial stance, but, I actually love Mondays. It's a chance to start fresh, get organized, and set new goals! My Monday morning routine always consists of: coffee, sorting through emails, and organizing my Planner Plans. In that order. 

 

I've got a few favorite Plans that I'm constantly switching between. Of course, the work contained in each isn't perfectly separate and often overlaps. For instance, I have a new idea so I create a task in my 'Ideas' board. Let's say, every time someone completes a task, a little dinosaur pops out of the corner and eats the task.

I add details to that task, and soon it's ready to become a work item to collaborate on! Until now, I've needed to manually copy over my tasks. Two windows, copy/paste, that kind of thing. Now that I can chose which plan (and bucket) I want a copy of my task to land in, I can send it over to the right place. Now my dinosaur idea has a beautiful spot on my 'Feature Wish List' board!
