TeamDynamix: Copying a Project Plan from one Project to another


Copying a project plan from one project to another can save time by eliminating the need to re-enter each new task when projects are very similar. 

Additionally, ET&S project types have changed as of July 1, 2023 so copying the entire project is not recommended as the project will maintain outdated project type settings.  Therefore, copying the project plan from within the project is the recommended method and will have a similar result.

Note:  This works only for Waterfall plans and not for Cardwall plans.
