I know this is a potentially unusual use case, but I am wondering if it is possible to duplicate a project and keep task comments?
It seems like everything else can be copied over when duplicating a project except for comments.
Our particular use case is that we are using a Project template for monthly operations reviews and my CEO would like to see comments carry over from the month prior so the manager assigned that monthly project can easily refer back to the comment history without having to navigate to the older / archived projects.
It doesn’t look like comments can be saved as part of the template, which makes a bit more sense, so I’m just wondering if anyone is aware of a way to preserve comment history.
Failing that, would be looking one of the following options:
- 3rd-party tool to import comments into existing tasks
- Best practices around maintaining tasks that never truly close.
Regarding the 2nd point above, I am thinking of an approach where we duplicate the project each month and then immediately archive it, making that the historical version, which would allow us to keep working off the main project with the history of comments. However, then we face the same issue with not having relevant comments for the tasks completed in the prior month in the now archived project.
