Hi! One feature that IMHO's missing in CP is the hability to create pre-defined issues for a new project (think of a template).

Because in my case (and I think most of designers and developers' cases), many issues are common among all my projects, such as Briefing, contract meeting, review, validation, etc.

Is there a way of doing so, and if not, anyone willing to develop that??

Thanks, and sorry for the poor english!

Do you mean :
  • you need different tracker types called briefing, contract meeting, etc., containing custom fields?
  • you want to book a time entry with such of those activities to a single issue?
  • you mean, you want a project template with a bunch of predifined issues all tight together, you can find in some project management tools.
    As a result you have a small standard project plan (Gantt-Chart)
    Here is a PDF of Merlin software with a some standard issues to express the last point see Client-Website.pdf

Hey, Markus, I think that's my case: a project template with a bunch of predifined issues all tight together.

In my quest trying to find that function (after posting on CP site), a friend told me in Facebook that he uses the Admnistrator "copy project" function.

He creates a series of templates for his commons tasks, named "AATemplate Webdesign" (for instance), and then he only hits the button "copy" everytime he wants a new project with all those settings predefined.

And I think it'll work for me!

But anyway, if one of you guys would like to create a "template" function, it'd be awesome for everyone (like me) that haven't found this "little trick" yet.

Thanks a lot for the quick response!

Hi Leandro,

I've edited the title of the issue to (I think) better reflect your intention. The best way to do this today is indeed to have a dummy project and to copy it as needed.

A little side-note: please only set the target version if you can commit to supply code until then, thanks.

  • Target version deleted (3.1.0)
  • Subject changed from To-do list (pre-defined issues) to Project templates
  • Category deleted (Forums)

I'd also like this functionality to be implemented.
