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.

Note: View of a task depends on project role and authorization. If a user has access to a task, they can email it (If on a Pro, Business, or Business Plus Subscription). On the same note, Project Admins can delete any task on the Project; Project Members can delete tasks they have created. Project Followers can delete any empty Tasks they have created. (For more information about project permissions, check out this article: Introduction to Project Permission Levels: Administrators, Members, and Followers.
When duplicating tasks on mobile, the values that you have input in your task for your Custom Task Attributes will also be duplicated.
Note: This functionality is currently only available on mobile but will be on Web in the near future.
