Support for Task Templates
Make sure to include many options for template start and due dates, such as "today", "tomorrow", in 6 days, in 1 week, in 2 months, etc.
I agree with nathanb131 about the icons in the workspace in order to trigger the templates.
Please also consider to include in the "voice" command the use of model (like "Create task 'buy sugar' with model 'market'"). Plese be sure that we can use this trick for Android Wear.
(please indicate if it's better to create a new suggestion in the uservoice for the voice command).
As part of this enhancement I would like to suggest a New Task widget that you can set with it's own task defaults.
For example, if I want to add a work task then I might want to set the widget so it creates a new task with:
Due date: today
Another New Task widget could be set up for my home or personal task defaults and would create a task with defaults as:
Due date: Tomorrow
This would be super helpful. Thanks for all your work!
and it would be useful to allow the option for the reminder to be relative to due date rather than an absolute date and time

Also be sure to include all settable fields such as reminder lead time, nagging, repeat, folder, context, etc.
I really like toodledo due date view where the task are separated by over due, and today, and tomorrow, and next 7, next 30.
could this template concept be extended to folders? Here's a use-case for it: I make wine, and each wine batch follows the same process, with specific intervals between tasks. It would be great if I could open the "Make Wine" template and select "new...", give the new batch a name and a start date and it would insert all the tasks sequentially...
The same use-case applies to any kind of repeatable set of tacks: change the oil (purchase oil and filter xxx, get [list of tools], etc.); in this case, the individual tasks have a 0 delay between them.
If these could be started up with individual Launcher Shortcuts, that would save a lot of time for me.
Currently, I use RapidFire tasks that lets me set up shortcuts for specific entries. It uses Toodledo's email import feature to execute it. 80% of my task entries fall under about 5 different folder/priority/due date etc settings. I have all of these set up as icons by your widget for quicker entry. But it can be glitchy and is a bit of a workaround. If you could create UTD templates AND shortcut icons that trigger them, I would happily pay extra for that add-on.
