Link groups or steps together in Task Sequence
Would be nice to have the ability to link identical groups or steps together, so that when you change one, all the linked ones also change.
This could be useful if you for example have a lot of repeating tasks in different parts of the task sequence, for example adjustments after reboots, or with different groups for software installations (where the steps are the same).
Groups\steps would probably need a "Link ID" and a visual change to reflect that the group\step is a linked group\step in the Task Sequence Editor.
Hi. Thanks for the feedback. What you’re suggesting is covered with this item – https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8339997-daisy-chain-task-sequences-osd-and-non-osd
The idea being steps that are common would be seen as modular – so with the modular steps in a ‘parent’ task sequence(s) an update to the modular would then update in all.
Please have a read of the link and let me know if that will address your ask. If so then I’ll merge the votes.
You’ll also see a comment that the Nested Task Sequence has disappeared from Tech Preview – that will be rectified shortly.

I guess that would somewhat cover what I suggested. I just wonder if it would be efficient to create modular task sequences for smaller identical steps or if just linking it internally would be easier and more readable. I guess it all depends on how it is implemented. Looking forward to see how this will work.
