Currently, I have a project with several tasks and sub tasks. Some
tasks have many(50+) subtasks. If I want to move the task to
another date, I have to move the subtasks individually to the new
start date. This gets time consuming if I have to adjust the time of
main tasks.

A feature of moving the main task that will move the subtasks in
the same relation would be helpful.

Example:
Before Move:

Maintask Start 15/10/2004 End 18/10/2004
--subtask1 Start 15/10/2004 End 16/10/2004
--subtask2 Start 16/10/2004 End 17/10/2004
--subtask3 Start 17/10/2004 End 18/10/2004

After adjusting Maintask Start:
Maintask Start 20/10/2004 End 23/10/2004
--subtask1 Start 20/10/2004 End 21/10/2004
--subtask2 Start 21/10/2004 End 22/10/2004
--subtask3 Start 22/10/2004 End 23/10/2004

Subtasks are moved in relation to the Start and End dates of the
task they are part of.

    Also when you move a start date back using the calendar in
    the properties editor. The task duration gets changed. I
    would prefer default option to remain fixed and adjust the
    task end date accordingly.
