Copy a task
Need the ability to copy a task, including the checklists and other items within the task. This would allow one to set up a template task, then create many tasks using that template task. This is a different request than the many copy suggestions that have been made already.
Copy task is now available in Planner! To use, click on a task’s details menu and select “Copy task”.
Constantly get this error message when attempting to copy a task:
We couldn't create task "XXXXXXX". Please try again later. Technical details

Thank you for including this. Is it also possible to cope multiple task to another basket?
Thanks for including this now :)
Same question. How can we paste the task into other planners? We need the ability to copy a task to a different Plan, please. Or copy a Plan. The ability to copy a task only within a single Plan has very limited use. Please update us on progress for being able to copy a task a a new Plan or a different Plan. Thank you
How can we paste the task into other planners?

So copying is understood and available. But how do you paste it back into another plan? Do you need to create a task and paste or simply CTRL V into the new plan??
Hooray!! This is wonderful.
Thank you for at least listen. But, the current fix is not exactly what I had in mind. I would like to copy multiple tasks between buckets and even plans. Not just one task at a time. Will this ever be in development?
Thanks for releasing this great feature... just found it today!!!

This is an absolute must have feature. Cant wait to use it.
@admin thank you for this. will appreciate this new feature.
Could we copy the task text too , Currently cant be selected

Moving tasks (ability to select multiple) between plans is a must have requirement. I am using Apps4.Pro Planner Manager to overcome this deficiency.

This would be a valuable feature for Planner. Many of the tasks my organization has are very similar. Recreating a checklist for each is very time consuming. I see this is In Development now is there an ETA?
This has been available in Trello for quite a while - perhaps developers should look at what Trello has developed and work on similar features:
- template tasks to copy
- copy across lists and boards
- create several cards from a single card description containing carriage returns
when would this be available. we have only been using planner a few weeks but need this feature asap
Hi all - do we have any update on development of this feature? It has been more than 1 year since feature development start ... or is "User Voice" not important anymore?

I have projects will similar task lists. it would be great to copy tasks or entire boards. I could create a Template Board that I would copy entirely or tasks individually.
