Users cannot copy the same tasks from template more than once.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a project template with Task Names and IDs as: Task 1, Task 2, Task 3.
  2. Create a new project and copy the tasks from template on the Gantt page. This works fine.
  3. Then try to copy the same tasks again to the same project.

Expected Results: Tasks are copied over a second time to the project. 

Actual Results: Nothing happens. No error message but tasks do not get copied.


Applies to all supported PAS environments for specified releases.


This is as per design. Tasks with an ID cannot be copied over to the same project more than once, as Task IDs are unique per project.


To copy tasks multiple times to a project, leave the Task ID field blank for the tasks in the template.
