How to duplicate a project and it's tasks? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Wondering how to easily do this and if it is possible.
As a web designer I have a Web Project for each client.
I want to create all the actions under "a web project" and then each time i have a new client I want to be able to create all the folders, tasks or actions quickly and easily.
Is there a simple way to duplicate a full project?
 
I've wished for the same feature, but as far as I can tell, it doesn't exist.
 
If you plan ahead, it is possible, though a bit clumsy. Make yourself a template project, but don't use it. Set it to repeat when completed. When you want to make a copy, you mark the template project complete, which causes a duplicate to be made. Unmark the template as complete, rename the new project suitably, and you are done.
 
thx for the info..
I bought the version for the Mac now and it has all the copy and duplicate commands I need.
And thx, wph.. creating a template and then using it on the ipad should work well.

Well, it is really a bit clumsy but still it's better than nothing. Thanks a lot!

You want clumsy, try duplicating a project of any appreciable size action-by-action (the alternative) and this will seem very convenient by comparison :-)

You can do copy/paste on individual actions. Tap and hold on an action until the popup menu appears.
 
That's a great tip - thanks!
