Multiple Task Templates, Why do all templates have the exact same fields, and no option to specialize task template types?
Alright, so again, I'm new to Bitrix, but I was looking over the task templates and I ran into a stumbling block.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but if I add custom fields to a task, it adds it to ALL the tasks.  Templates?  They don't even give me the option to create custom fields for different applications and tasks types.

Lacking those options, I have a difficult time really understanding what I'd possibly use templates for.  It's nice to set up a task template that has a set of subtasks automatically generated, but that kind of thing isn't something that happens often in my industry.

The ability to create completely different templates with different fields and such?  That would be vital.

Am I missing something? Because this seems like an obvious feature for Templates that doesn't seem to be there.

New Status Options For Tasks, Plus Other, A multi-stage status option for tasks

While I'm relatively new to Bitrix, I've really been impressed with what I've seen.  One of the things that has been a bit of a stumbling point is the lack of a meaningful way to stage your tasks.  You can 'hit start' and it's 'In Progress', or you can pause it and it's 'Pending', or you can finish it and it's 'Closed'.

My particular needs is something like the above, where at each stage an automated workflow can be initiated.  Task moved to 'Ready for Review' (A custom status), it gets sent to the editor. 'Complete'?  It gets sent off to payroll and the account manager for delivery.  The ability to have tasks at various stages of the process is incredibly useful, is there a way to make this happen with Bitrix?  Rather than a binary 'In Progress' / 'Pending'?
Feature Request: Recurring Deals for Maintenance Renewals, Feature Request: Recurring Deals for Maintenance Renewals
We have monthly recurring contracts, deals that would need to be automatically updated as they're the exact same thing over and over again.  Also, the deal system seems to lack an 'in progress' indicator.  While this may, for some, intuitively go into the tasks department, it seems that it would be convenient to have a deal that is still in the air as the project continues be in a 'being fulfilled' status.  Additionally, with the ability to automatically reinstate itself once completed.

Or maybe I'm misunderstanding the nature of the Deal tab.
