We would love to be able to move entire Sections (i.e. the Section and all the Tasks under that Section) from one Project to another Project. This could be either a MOVE option or a COPY option. The absolute best would be to have the option to do either a MOVE or a COPY.
I think the methods that would be easiest for Users would be:
- Click and drag an entire Section into the side-bar and drop it into a different Project (have a “Move or Copy” pop-up)
- Have a menu pop-up on a Section that has an option to Move or Copy to another Project
Currently you can’t really “select” a Section, which means you can’t multi-select Sections and move them together, even within its own Project. You can drag it within a Project but that’s it.
Current Work-Around: Go into the destination Project and create Sections that correspond with the origination Project. Return to the Origination Project and multi-select all of the individual Tasks in that Section. On the side-care you can select where those Tasks live, allowing you to select the destination Project/Section. Then you can remove the origination Project. This simulates a “Move Section” action.
Use Case: We have various Projects with Sections that are beneficial for a new Project that might emerge, and it would be easiest to copy over the whole Section. Example: part of an overall Project might be a Section for “Conduct User Training” with a bunch of Tasks under it. But doing training ends up being a part of a ton of Projects we have so it would be so convenient to just take that Section from another Project and copy it over into a new Project where we know we’ll need to do “User Training.”
