Project template troubleshooting

I’m running into several issues with the Project templates I’m hoping someone can help me with.

  1. When I do create one the tasks will be out of order, regardless of how I do it. I’ve turned on logging to debug instead of fatal, tried adjusting the task number and task order (all three suggested from other articles).
  2. If I save it regardless of the issues, it’s no long accessible once it doesn’t show in my recently view side panel anymore.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
