Using Templates in Toodledo
The next time you need to perform this project, switch to the Notes tab, copy the title of that note, and use it to create a new task. Change the title so it is specific to this particular project:
Trevor Smith / Record info in contacts list
Next, highlight and copy the body of the note (all the steps) and paste them into the task notes.
Then, process the task/project, set a date for the next step,
When the first step is completed, you will re-process normally. All other steps in that project are poised and ready for their turn.
Note: If you see the template tasks in your normal lists, your task list filters, if supported, should be updated to exclude the Templates context (the way they may already exclude Someday/Maybe or other attributes).
