Inserting multiple rows with daughters into an existing sheet

Hello,

I have a series of projects (~30 and growing) that all have the same set of 8 tasks that are inserted as daughters to the specific project I want to track all of these in one sheet. Is there someway that I can set up a template that will automatically insert the daughters for each new project.


There was an earlier thread on this, but I did not really understand the solution.

Thank you ,

    Hi @TCCJ

    There currently isn't a way to automatically create a set number of child rows. The Community post you linked out to suggested having the template at the top of the sheet so you could manually copy/paste the rows underneath each parent.

    An alternative would be to have the template rows on a second sheet, then use the "Copy Row" action to move them over to the bottom of your current sheet when needed. See: Copy and paste hierarchy 

    Cheers!
