Project templates draft are a fast and easy way to plan and schedule work in Float. You can create a new template from nothing, or use an existing project to build one.

To create a new template, click the Manage page > Projects > Manage templates. Enter any relevant project info, add your team, and create your tasks.

You'll see the same project info each time you use the template, so it's up to you how specific to get with the details.

💡 Here's a tip: Check the Lock task list box to prevent new tasks from being added and ensure that your team schedules work and logs time from an approved list.

To create a new template from one of your existing projects, click into the project menu and select Actions > Create template from project.

Once you've created a template, you'll be able to use it whenever you add a new project.

If your team works on the same tasks repeatedly, or you want to use one of your existing projects as a jumping-off point for new work, using a project template will help automate the creation process and give you back more of your time.
