I have a VF page with a custom Extension controller that creates a task or series of tasks on a button click from the Contact page. Users have the ability to create an initial task then a follow up or another un-related task. The issue I am running into is when a user creates an initial task and a follow-up and then creates another un-related task, the follow-up task previously created gets cloned. I want the un-related task to not have a follow-up task until/if the user decides they want one. Any ideas on how to handle?


public with sharing class RDATasks{

    public list<Task> listTask{get;set;}
    public list<Task> listTaskFollow{get;set;}
    public integer n;

    Set<Task>Tasks = new Set<Task>();
    Set<Task>FollowTasks = new Set<Task>();

    private final Contact con;
    public RDATasks(ApexPages.StandardController myController){
        listTask = new List<Task>();
        listTaskFollow = new List<Task>();

//  Adds RDA Task to list
    public void RDA()
        listTask.add(new Task(
           WhoId = con.Id,
           Status = 'Completed',
           ActivityDate = system.TODAY(),
           Subject = '',
           Description = '',
           OwnerId = UserInfo.getUserId(),
           WhatId = con.AccountId,
           RDA__c = TRUE,
           FollowUp__c = FALSE)

//  Adds RDA Follow-Up Task to list
    public void RDAfollow()
        n=listTask.size() - 1;
        listTask[n].FollowUp__c = FALSE;
        listTaskFollow.add(new Task(
           WhoId = con.Id,
           Status = 'In Progress',
           ActivityDate = system.TODAY()+7,
           Subject = 'Follow-Up: '+listTask[n].Subject,
           OwnerId = UserInfo.getUserId(),
           WhatId = con.AccountId,
           RDA__c = TRUE,
           FollowUp__c = TRUE)

//  Saves list of RDA Tasks added
    public PageReference saveTask(){
        insert listTask;
        insert listTaskFollow;

            integer last = listTaskFollow.size();
            PageReference contactPage = new PageReference('/' + con.Id);
            return contactPage;
