Ability to insert Project activities from Template

Ability to insert Project activities from Template

Idea

It should be possible to insert multiple activities from a project template or from another project. Currently, it is possible to create a complete project from a project template, but ability to insert only few select activities into an existing project is needed.

Background:

  - Many project managers would like to define the skeleton of an NPD project from the template and allow the

owners of the summary activities to insert sub tasks below them. For example, Quality Engineer can insert the detailed Quality planning activities below the "Quality Planning" Summary task. Since these are multiple, standard activities, it will be more efficient to insert them from a project template or from another reference project.

Suggested solution:

   Currently, it is not possible to copy / paste activities from another project. If this is possible, then the project manager can easily copy the required activities from a master project and copy them into the working project.

   Alternately, copy from Template would be more sophisticated action, since it can copy the deliverables, resource etc. from the template
