Duplicating Projects

Table 19. Availability - Legacy plans


All users except collaborators can duplicate projects.

Duplicate a project to quickly copy its data and contents.

When you duplicate a project, the owner, workflow, start and end dates, custom fields, subprojects, and dependencies between tasks are automatically duplicated as well. Project status isn't duplicated and the new project has the first status in its workflow. Comments from the project aren't copied.


There's a limit of 4000 items created from blueprints and/or duplicated per every 7 days. Every time you create an item from a blueprint or duplicate an item, Wrike checks if the limit has been reached in the previous 7 days. If the limit is reached, you won't be able to create new items from blueprints or via duplication. You can try again in the following days, e.g., if you created 4000 items on a Tuesday, you can create more items only next Tuesday.

Duplicate a project

There are several ways to duplicate:

  1. From the space’s sidebar:

    1. Navigate to the project in a sidebar.

    2. Right-click on project 1 and select Duplicate 2 from the menu.

  2. From Table view:

    1. Navigate to the space that contains the relevant project.

    2. Switch to Table view 3.

    3. Right-click or click on the three-dot menu button 4 next to the title.

    4. Select Duplicate 5 from the menu that appears.

  3. From project's item view:

    1. Navigate to a relevant space and select a project from the side bar.

    2. Click on the info icon 6 next to the project's title to open its item view.

    3. Click on the three dot menu button 7 to top right corner of the view and select Duplicate 8 from the drop-down.

  4. From the Duplicate menu you can:

    1. Change the project name (optional) 9.

    2. Add a prefix (optional) 10. Text added in the prefix field is added to the beginning of the titles of all items within the duplicated project (this includes subprojects, subfolders, tasks, and subtasks).

    3. Select a new location (optional) 11. Select the folder, project, or space where your duplicated folder should be added. If you don’t pick a new location, the copy is created in the same location as the original.

  5. Check the boxes under What to copy 12 to select what you'd like to duplicate:

    • Tasks: Copy all of the project tasks and subtasks.

    • Description: Copy the task descriptions as well as the project description.

    • Attachments: Copy items attached to tasks and the project info panel.

    • Assignees: Copy task assignees.

    • Custom field values: Duplicated tasks will always have the same custom fields as the original tasks, but you can check this box to copy data from the original tasks to the new tasks.


      Custom fields inherited from top-level folders, projects, and spaces won’t be copied if you change the project location when duplicating.

    • Reschedule 13: Leave this box unchecked to make the task dates identical to the scheduled dates in the original project. Check this box to set the start date of the first task or due date of the last task in the project. All other tasks will be rescheduled accordingly.

  6. (Optional) check Add another 14 so that the dialog box remains open and you can duplicate another project (you can configure each project differently using this option).

  7. Click Duplicate 15.
