Due Date automation for Subitems

I see this has been floating around as a “we’ll get to it” for a couple of years now, but I’m just pitching in on this…

The subitem automation is flawed until you can set a due date on the subitems based on the current date and/or the due date of the parent item.

I have an automation set up to create multiple subitems based on the type of project being added.

Each subitem should have the same due date as the project itself. Currently, there doesn’t seem to be a way to set the due date to anything except a fixed date that is always the same date regardless of when the automation runs (which seems like a bug).

I was fine just leaving the subitem date field blank, but if you do that, the reporting tool on team member capacity no longer works, as it’s looking for due dates.
