Project Template is a Starter plan feature. It allows you to create many similar projects quickly. Projects created using an existing Template have settings such as Billable Rates, Estimates, Tasks and Team already applied.

Setting up a project template

There are two approaches to setting up a Project Template. You can create a template from an existing project or create a new project just for the purpose of creating a project template. 

If you choose to create a template from an existing project you need to have Administrator access rights to choose any project from the list of projects on the Projects page. If you are a regular user, you will only be able to create templates from projects you've created yourself.

Whichever approach you choose to go with, you need to access the settings page for that specific project by clicking on the project from the list of projects on the Projects page.

Choose the Project you'd like to edit, click on Edit Project in the top right corner and use the 3-dot control to make it a template project.

Removing a project template

Removing a Project Template requires you to locate the project on the Projects page, open it, and click on the Edit Project button to open the Edit popup. Here you can turn off the option to Use as template via the 3-dot control.

Applying a Project Template to a new project

Now that you have your template set up you can easily apply it to a new project. 

Whether you're trying to create a Project from the Projects page or while creating a new time entry, the Create New Project popup will allow you to apply an existing Project Template to your new project.
