Getting a group of predecessors to fill in sections

I have the same set of subtasks in my project that repeat over and over. I have predecessors set up for the flow and I want to copy and paste it down the sheet and have the associated rows update to the new numbers. Everything I try just copies and pastes the original set of row numbers. Updating every row manually is going to take forever.

    Hi @Ksephora

    As long as the Child Rows are referencing each other (meaning the Predecessors are under the same Parent) then the Predecessors will update when you Copy/Paste to reference the newly pasted rows.

    However if any of the references are outside of that specific Parent, then the Predecessor number will stay associated with that external row number, does that make sense?
