I didn’t find any post on this matter, is this feature avaliable already and I didn’t find it? I’ve been using Vikunja for just a couple of days and that’s totally possible.
For example, let’s assume I have some recurrent list of tasks, like grocery list, or weekly home tasks, that changes a little bit every time. Instead of rewriting the whole list every time, I do a copy in a namespace Templates, so I now have a sort of template list, encompassing all the recurrent tasks. When I need to create a new recurrent list, I copy the template list in the proper namespace and then I delete all the tasks, or groceries, unneeded for that particular week.
Deleting a task needs at least 3 clicks and a scroll down, would it be possible to add a delete icon at the right of the edit icon? The first time it could ask a second confirmation, but with the possibility to set a flag not to ask again to confirm.
In the future, a better solution could be to have an actual template list, where the user can select the exact tasks they need to create the recurrent list (instead of copying the whole list and the delete the unneeded tasks).
Just my 2c
