Within Teamwork, you can set defaults from an existing task so the properties of that task will be used as the default for all new tasks created in the task list.

Hover over the relevant task and click the three dots to the right of the task. From the dropdown menu, hover over More and select Use as Task Default from the additional pop-out menu.
