About copying projects

You can copy an existing project and use it as a template to save time configuring your views and custom fields.

When you copy a project, the new project will contain the same views and custom fields. You also have the option to copy existing draft issues. The new project will not contain the original project's items, workflows, insights, collaborators, or team and repository links.
