Require task completion before progressing a Sequence

Scott from the product team here. 


In Sequences today, task completion is NOT required before progressing onto the next step in a sequence.  For a sequence with multiple email steps, call tasks, and social touchpoints, this means that if a task step is not completed, future emails and tasks will still get sent or created.

To solve this, we're evaluating support for this feature in Sequences:

My team really needs this feature! It's hard to use the sequencing feature otherwise and we're now looking for a 3rd party sequencing tool that messes with my call flow. Help please!

@cbasaing  Can you let me know if you find something? We're in the same position. I had a nice chat with Glen (product at Hubspot) and it's coming up, but we're feeling the pinch as well.

I have been needing this badly for the last 2 years. Excited they are working on it. Can't imagine it being that hard of a fix.
