We often find ourselves wanting to make a task tree that looks very similar to ones we've had in the past. For example, when adding a new person, we get something like:
- Add user xyz
- Setup user xyz in ldap
- Setup email for xyz
- Get paperwork for xyz
Where we have on the order of 30 well-defined subtasks that are done by different people.
We've taken a couple approaches so far. Most straightforward but laborious is we manually replicate the task tree from the last time. This is not great. In other cases, we've opted to use a checklist in a task description where everybody kinda knows which pieces is theirs and just edits the task to indicate completion:
- setup email
This is easier to clone, but is more unwieldy to use in that the different pieces can't be assigned or managed in a workboard independently.
So that's my rough problem (and how I've attempted to cope with it so far). Are there any suggestions on how to model such a situation?
