Templates are re-usable portions of a project (milestones, task lists, tasks, doc templates) that can be used in creating other similar types of projects. Something like a ‘project clone’. Ever had a process that you follow and wish you did not have to type it out everytime you made a new project? DeskAway Templates will help you save time and get you more process-driven.
1. Click on any Project (not archived) and you will get the “Create Template” link on the right corner of the “Project” sub menu.
2. A template can copy the following data from an existing project to a new project:
a. Active Team Members
c. Task Lists
d. Doc Templates
Give a name/ description to your template (e.g. Web Design Process) and click on Save. Next, you will be taken to the Templates page.
Here, choose the template that you just saved and load it in a new project by clicking on the “Load in New Project” Link.
A new project will be created with the data from the template you just loaded. Using “Templates” saves time adding the same content (Milestones, Task Lists etc.) to a new Project. Aren’t we all pressed for time these days?
