Default How to make same tasknames in different summary tasks distinguishable


Hi, I have 100 summary tasks all made up by the same 5 subtasks.
E.g.
Ingest
Edit
Review
Export


The summery tasks have different names, the subtasknames are repeating.
In Gantt chart and Any other table I can add the summary task name column. But in team planner I do not know which task belongs to which summary task.
Is there a best practice for bulk rename many tasks?
Or do you have any other idea?
Regards Björn

If this si about a field that exists in Task Information, what you have to do is select the tasks, then click the task information button on the task ribbon. The form "Multiple task information" comes up and you can enter one value for all of the selected tasks.

Hi Terrance,
thanks for your reply, I guess i did not explain it the right way. I will give you a simple example.

We want to build three tables.
First we set up the workflow for one table: (Boldt is the summary task)

build table
leg1
leg2
leg3
leg4
plate
finish

Then we copy the summary task and rename every summary task:

build table 1
leg1
leg2
leg3
leg4
plate
finish

build table 2
leg1
leg2
leg3
leg4
plate
finish

build table 3
leg1
leg2
leg3
leg4
plate
finish

In Gantt view or in the different table views we can show the column "summary task name" which helps to differentiate the subtasks.
But e.g. in team planner I can not see which "leg1" task is meant. All of them look the same.

With such few subtasks it is not a problem to rename them. But what if I build 100 tables or I have many more subtaks in a summary task?

Maybe there is a better way than renaming every single subtask?
