Create Numbered Children

This action can be run on one or more selected tasks.

It shows a form prompting the user for the number of child tasks to be created, and then creates that amount of numbered task.

For example, if the task Do something is selected and '4' is selected, the resultant tasks will look like this:

  • Do something
    • 1
    • 2
    • 3
    • 4
