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.

If you have created a task with particular properties that you would like to set as the default properties for all new tasks on that task list, you can do it quickly from the task options menu.

Hover over the task and click the three dots on the left. From the dropdown menu, select Use as Task Default.
