Trigger a task once one is completed

alison2106 says:
Is there anyway to trigger a task once another task has been completed i.e. order something on 1st, once completed trigger a subtask to collect it 3 days later?

Hi alison2106,
It's not possible to do this automatically, but what I do is to set a repeating task with subtasks. Then I can monitor the main task, set the subtasks as needed, and keep them going.

This would regenerate the completed subtasks each time though, so this may not be ideal. (I just delete the generated subtask as needed.)

Otherwise what may be easier is to set the tasks based on the expected due dates and then to postpone as needed.

Hope this helps a bit!
