Projects as Templates:

We’re excited to share an enhancement to a feature you might already be familiar with — the ability to designate projects as templates. This functionality allows you to create new projects by using these templates, bringing over any jobs and documents contained within them.

While this feature has always been part of our toolkit, we’ve made improvements to make it much easier and more intuitive to use. Now, setting up new projects using templates is more streamlined and straightforward, helping you maintain consistency across your projects.

For detailed instructions on how to use this feature, you can refer to the documentation here.
