Changing date and its subtasks proportionally

drfrankbuck says:
Suppose I have with a due date of today its subtasks have due dates. Is there a way for me to change the due date for the task and have the due dates of its subtasks changed proportionally.

For example: Task has due date of June 10. I have 5 subtasks due June 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 respectively.

I want to change the due date of the task to July 10 and want to subtasks to be due July 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

I know that I could postpone the task by 30 days and then multiselect the subtasks and postpone them 30 days.

Is there a way to handle the whole thing in one step?

Hi drfrankbuck,
Currently there's no way to handle the task and subtasks in one step, sorry.

Aside from your example of doing it in two steps, another thing would be that if your task repeats every month the subtasks would be adjusted from month to month automatically. So, in your example, each task would have the "10th" due date with subtasks due on the 5th–9th.

Hope this helps a bit either way!
