Allowing for duplicating of Project Templates 2.0

I am loving Project Templates 2.0 but one thing I wish it had so far while using has been the ability to duplicate a project template. My team uses an Asana project template for onboarding and I want to make another onboarding project template for another type of position, but I don’t want to start from scratch and would much rather copy an existing template I already have.

I know the workaround is me creating a project from an existing template and then making that newly created project a template itself, but that won’t preserve the relative start and end dates I’ve defined and these projects have lots of tasks in them. I’d rather not have to go task by task and redo these.

Thanks!

@pdmcdermott be sure to upvote your own idea :wink:

Asana launches an MVP (minimum viable product) first then adds functionality over time so I would bet this comes quickly.

Thanks for the feedback, @pdmcdermott1 I’ll be sure to pass this on to our Product team!

totally agree - we have similar but different project with the same “skeletal backbone” - this feature is a must!

Thousand percent. Not having this is a huge pain.

Same here…just wanting to be another voice for this feature. Would love to be able to duplicate a template, edit and then save as a new template.

Dying for this!

Much needed option. Eagerly waiting for this.

YES! We spend some much time making our templates it hurts to start from scratch.

It’s a workaround but you can create a project using the template and then use “Save as template” from the project section.

This way you don’t have to create everything from scratch.

I recognized this workaround, but doing this doesn’t preserve the relative start and end dates of the tasks in the project, which is a major inconvenience.
