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”.
We have recurring tasks with large checklists. It would be great to create once and clone multiple times.

It would be helpful if just the whole plan could be copied, withouth the assignments and comments. Or similar to that, to make it a template for future plans.
I need this too
I would like to vote for 10000000 times. we have tasks the repeat for different clients and it is such a pain to manually recreate!

Just mandatory for repetitive tasks!
This, this a thousand times this. Would be amazing if we could copy tasks from bucket to bucket. And, wider-scale, from plans to plans.

This is a must!
Trillytl, I interpret this as different from a copy/move function - Scott is looking for the ability to setup a template task and create new tasks from templates.
For example, I could be an HR Manager who hires 20 employees per week. I can go to my Operations plan and add a task from the 'Onboarding' template for each new employee, and the checklist would allow me to ensure all to-dos are completed for each employee.
+1 for the template suggestion as it would be very helpful, and I suggest this stays separate from copy/move functions as those are very different suggestions focused on reusing or moving a single task, not a template.
Please allow for tasks to be copied

The ability to duplicate a task would be great! There are times I create a task, add some checklist items and then need almost the same task with similar checklist items for another environment (on the same Plan) so I can assign it to another person or to be due on another date. Today, I can't easily copy all the text in the name, description and checklists.
There is another idea posted for a copy / move function. would be good to merge these to gather everyones votes in one place.
I would like to be able to copy a task or a bucket
