Allow to copy projects and tasks


Allow to copy projects and tasks including subtasks with their relative dates. If this is also possible for archived projects, it would be easy to use those archived projects as templates for checklists and processes.

you can already use an existing project with all its tasks, subtasks and due dates as a template.
- open the project
- on the "main screen" (not in the project list) click the gear-wheel and select "export as template" to save the project as a text file

- to import, create a new project
- click the gear-wheel as above and select "import from template"
- use the text file you created above

Thank you. This is very useful.

Maybe it would be a good idea to integrate this (dealing with templates) within HTML5 so that I do not have so save/load text files.

The export as a template feature is great in and of itself, but is very very clumsy for use as a way of copying individual tasks or even as a mechanism copy a project. Think of how many steps are required to do this versus a simple Copy/Cut/Paste operation. In addition, the user has to remember to go and remove any left over export files that represent a security risk. Fortunately, the stopgap for now is to use http://www.taskresolver.com. But this is just a temporary fix. Task Copy/Cut/Paste as well duplication of projects is absolutely a must in addition to the very nice import / export feature.
