When we try to create a new Project from template, using the "New From Template" button information from the template (Ie: tasks, staff, collaboration folders and documents, etc) are not copied to the project.
Additionally, when creating a project from template using a process, the expected items are not copied over to the new project.
Any Clarity PPM Release
You will have to choose between using the "New from Template" button or your Template process to copy all of these items over to the new project. Here is how to resolve this issue depending on your choice.
Choice #1: Use BPM defined processes associated with a template to control what items are copied over to the new project.
If you choose to use the process to create your new projects from template, you will need to make sure you use the System Actions provided to copy the items you want over to the new project:
If you want users to continue to be able to use the "New From Template" button, you can create a template process that launches on create and uses the provided system actions to copy the items you want.
In Release 16.x, the 'Create from Template' and 'Create Projects' access rights are separated. Therefore, the Administrator can control the method users can pick for creating their projects.
Choice #2: Do not use any BPM Process definitions to control what is copied over to the new project.
If you want to use the "New from Template" button you will need to change your process to "On Hold" or "Draft" mode. At that point the "New from Template" button will work the way it did before adding the template process.
