Summary0008170: Need functionality to copy / clone project structures (e.g. via templates)


Our company has a project structure with many sub-projects. The subprojects have different custom fields associated with them.

Every time we start a new project, we need to recreate this structure. This is tedious and error prone.

I'm looking for some way to select an existing project that we can use as a template, and copy or 'clone' it to create a new project with the identical structure in its sub-projects and custom fields.

Steps To Reproduce

Create a project with 5 or 10 sub-projects, assign custom fields to the different sub-projects, and once complete then attempt to recreate the project structure for a new (second) project.

At present it appears that all steps need to be reprosuced again, which is tedious and error prone.

TagsNo tags attached.
