Create template from project

You can create templates when you save an existing project as a template.

After you save an existing project as a template, you can use the new template to create new projects. This simplifies and expedites the project creation process.

When saving a project as a template, the actual dates of the tasks and of the project do not save for the template.
A template and its tasks do not have actual dates, but rather an indication of which day (from when the future project might start) a task might start and on which day the task might need to complete. When using templates to create the future projects, the projects will receive actual dates. For information, see Create a project.
