Within Teamwork Projects, you can populate new projects from project templates on your site.

Go to the Projects area at the top of your site and click Add Project in the upper right corner.

Note: Only users with permission to add projects can create projects from a template.

In the Add Project modal, click the Choose Template link below the project description.

The dropdown at the top of the Dates tab allows you to control how task and milestone dates in the template should be applied to the project:

  • Allow task and milestone dates to fall on weekends.
  • Don't include Saturdays and Sundays when calculating new dates.
  • Calculate new due dates but keep tasks and milestones off weekends.


You can also enable a Chat channel when creating a project from a template via the Advanced tab in the project modal.
