Copy a task, resource

You can copy:

  • entire tasks or resources corresponding to a single row in the grid (copy single row)   or
  • multiple tasks or resources corresponding to multiple rows in the grid (copy multiple rows)

Although you can copy or move a task or resource at any time, it's best to do so before you establish task dependencies. When you copy or move a task or resource, application does not reestablish task dependencies.

Application copies or moves the following associated information with the task or resource:

  When you copy a task the following information about it will be copied: task name, duration, work, cost, start and finish dates, constraints, task calendar, task mode, task type, assigned resources, %complete, %work complete, notes, actual duration, remaining duration, actual cost, remaining cost, actual work, remaining work, baseline start, baseline finish, baseline work, hyperlink, address and subaddress.

   In case of copying a resource the following information about it will be copied: resource name, type, material label, initials, group, std. rate, cost/use, base calendar and code.

In the ID field, select the task or resource that you want to copy or move:

   To select a row, click the task or resource ID number of the row.

   To select a group of adjacent rows, in case of multiple selection, hold down SHIFT, and then click the first and last ID numbers of the group.

   To select several nonadjacent rows, hold down CTRL, and then click the ID numbers.

To copy the task or resource, click Copy option from Task tab. Another possibility of copying a task or resource is to use CTRL+C or to select Copy Task or Copy Resource from the contextual menu after you right click on a task/resource ID.

In order to paste a task or resource, In the ID field, select the rows where you want to paste the selection.

Click Paste .

If there is information in the destination row, the new rows will be inserted above the destination row.

When copying a task within the same project, the task's ID numbers are regenerated. If you want to move a task within a project, drag and drop the task in the task list to maintain the task's unique ID numbers.

When the selection is a summary task, if the summary task is collapsed all of its subtasks are copied/cut, whilst when the summary task is expanded just the summary task row is copied/cut.
