How do I duplicate a task?


Overview & background


You can duplicate tasks on both web and mobile. This is particularly useful if you are on site and need to document repeated issues such as a slab with multiple cracks. Rather than manually creating many tasks one by one, you can simply duplicate the task as many times as you need. This will create new tasks with the same title, category, assignee, priority, checklists, start/end dates, and hashtags.
