How to save a project as a gantt chart template

If you create the same kinds of projects over and over again, you might want to save your project as a template so you can save time on future setup. That way you don't have to build a project from scratch every time. 

Here's how to save a project as a template:

  1. Open the project. 
  2. Go to Menu > Save as Template.

It’s as simple as that! 

Once you’ve saved a project as a template, you can access it anytime under My Templates in the Templates drop-down or under Team Templates on the templates hub page when creating a new project.
