Copy Release Template

Allow existing release templates to be copied to make a new template. For example, copy a product line template to a product to customize that template. It is too difficult to do this manually, especially when you consider that each phase has a color, and ideally the same phases should have the same color across products. This is difficult to do when manually creating each phase for each "related" template. 

Just let us copy or clone one..

    Any chance we can get this idea revisited? In addition to the above use case, sometimes we have to develop/test Release Templates with our PM community and associated stakeholders. What I would like to do is create a test Product/Product Line, then build and test the Release Template, then once approved, simply copy it to the right place in the hierarchy.

    Today I can't do that, I have to build it in it's desired location, which is confusing for end users as the Template may not be complete or may not have been approved yet.

    It is very time consuming to have to create the template so many times.  We have multiple templates that are very similar.

    Is there an update on this? This feature would be very helpful to have especially in a large organization with several product lines.  Thanks!

    Hi there. While we can see value in this update, due to other priorities this is not currently planned on our roadmap. We will continue to watch customer feedback on it though and consider it for the future.

    This is important for us. We've had to recreate template now multiple times, each with different phases & to-do & predefined descriptions/assignees etc. It's SO tedious to recreate them. You can copy Workflows - why not Templates?

    For our organization, we have 20+ products across 4 product lines. Each of these products has standard release formats, ideal for templates. The setup and maintenance of release templates at this scale is untenable. For any level of standardization, this is a must have.
