Project template configuration

The Project Template Configuration list defines the items that are included in a template.

Navigate to Project > Settings > Template Config to display the Project Template Configuration list. Each item in this list has:
  • A defined parent table. The exception is pm_project, which is the root or top-level object in the template.
  • A link element. This is a field that links the parent table and the child table.
  • A list of fields to include in the template. The fields defined in this column are the fields that are copied to a project template.
The Project Template Configuration list contains three default template configuration items: project, project task, and project sub-task. You can modify these default items or create additional items from this list.
Table 1. Default Project Template Configuration Items
Item Definition Parent Link Element
pm_project Project object None. This object does not have a parent because it is the root level. None. This object does not have a link element because it is at the root level.
pm_project_task Project task object pm_project Parent. Because this task object is one level below the root level, it uses the parent table as a link element.
pm_project_task Project sub-task object pm_project_task Parent. Because this sub-task object is two levels below the root level, it uses the parent table as a link element.
Click an item in the Project Template Configuration list to open the project Template Configuration form.
