Release 20 | Templates

Updated September 8th, 2021

As part of Release 20, a new Templates feature is available.

Templates are managed in the new Templates Collection. To start planning with Templates, navigate to the Projects tab and click All at the upper-left corner in the breadcrumb trail. 

  • Build a new template by adding a project folder to one of the sample packages & add or import tasks to the project. 
  • Configure the project template’s dashboard to save even more time down the road – all projects created from the template will have the same customized dashboard configuration as the project template.
