Copy sections with tasks

I would like the ability to copy a whole section and its tasks (with all info and subtasks) by clicking the three dots to the right of the section name. We can copy full projects, but I often find myself building out a new section for a client and then thinking I would like to add that section to all the other client projects as well. Now I have to create a section and copy the tasks and I can’t copy in bulk either if I have descriptions and subtasks that I want copied as well. If it’s only the name of the tasks it’s fairly simple.

This is especially handy when you have the same process for all your clients. A step further would be to be able to save sections as templates. And each time you create a new section you have the choice to create a new one or look for it in your templates library.

Thank you!

Thanks for taking the time to share this feedback @Emma_Perols! I’ve also sent your request internally so it can be considered in future updates.

In the meantime, you can use the multi-select feature. I know is not the same that you are requesting but it’ll allow you to quickly make some actions in bulk.

@Emma_Perols,

Until/if that becomes available, here’s a workaround that at least handles the multiple-task copy:

There’s another approach that’s somewhat related and useful sometimes:

Both methods necessitate that you create the section itself, but at least handle the bulk of the copy operation.
