The subsequent recurring task should get values for specific attributes if desired. E.g. some custom attribute should be automatically set to its initial (specified) value rather than to the value as of the previous task. Thus the subsequent recurring task will start the desired lifecycle and allows counting each run (instance) as well as its total duration rather than totalling duration over all runs by all efforts. It is important for reports on progress and efforts in order to estimate tasks in further.

There should be several typical options for each possible task attribute:
  • copy from previous
  • set to the value specified
  • set by default
In the third column there should be the desired value if applicable. The figure below exemplifies what I mean:
