We have seen many issues with copied projects that lead to incorrect/missing tasks, assignments, irrelevant documents getting carried over etc to name a few.
Disabling the copy feature would help ensure all the projects created in Workfront are in sync with the latest enhancements and updates that are in place.
Challenges the native copy feature causes:
I would like the ability to disable the Copy Project feature as well. Our templates have changed and many of the tasks and assignments are incorrect on older projects. Also we have an API numbering app that doesn't automatically assign project numbers on copied projects. And honestly I don't think it saves any time for the project owner because of all of the updates needed for a copied project.
I COMPLETELY DISAGREE - AS WE USE COPY PROJECT FEATURE - DAILY.
Now make disable as a System Administrator setting - I'd agree with.
Agreed with other comments in that we don't want to completely remove the copying feature, but we, as Admins, would like control over disabling it if need be (user, team, or group levels would be great).
I too completely disagree in this regard, there might be few option can be added while copying such as;
1) Add Excluding few features (predecessors / assignments / planned hours etc.). Since when we create any project best to refer the template. Also keep control and review periodically.
2) Agree with @Nick Valeriote, can be added to control from system admin point of view would be also good.
I would love to be able to disable the copy feature on a user/team/group level.
Yes! Thanks, WF!
