Using Projects as Templates

Estimated reading: 2 minutes 177 views


theBOSSapp includes a feature that allows you to use existing projects as templates for new projects. This feature saves time and effort in creating new projects, as you can easily create a new project based on the settings, information and configurations of an existing project.

When using a project as a template, you have the option to choose whether you would like to copy over the jobs within the project, as well as any files associated with it. This ensures that you can have all the relevant information and data in your new project, reducing the need to manually enter all the details.
