How to Clone a Project


Many shows and events feature long lists of common elements. Perhaps you work with the same people over and over, or produce and annual festival that is similar from year to year. Or perhaps your overall work structure doesn't vary much from project to project.

Using Propared's Project Cloning tool you can set up templates or reuse information from last year's event to get you up and running even faster.

  2. If you'd like, you may shift the dates of the new project in one of two ways...
    1. Relative to a specific Event in your Timeline (our personal favorite)
    2. By a specific unit of time (Minutes, Hours, Days, Months, or Years)

  3. Click "Yes, Do It!"

2.2. Shift Dates by a Specific Unit of Time
