Project Templates - Project Management Software

ZilicusPM project management software providers default project schedule/ plan templates which project manager can use to get started with, creating new project. These are also known as Gantt chart templates

Some of these default project templates are suitable for

  • Professional services project template

Turn every project into project template

ZilicusPM allows project managers to turn existing projects as project templates. Basically, every project that you create and save, can be used as a project template using this project management tool. Whenever you have similar project schedule to be used for next project, ZilicusPM allows re-use of existing projects as template so that you can save that time. 

You can also create custom fields for tasks, issues, risks and changes and those will also become part of your project template.

Existing Project as Template For Import

Import existing project schedule

While creating a new project, ZilicusPM allows you to select existing project for import. This essentially, enable you to re-use existing projects as template. You do not need to export existing project’s schedule to some external file (say MS Project format or Excel) to reimport to the tool. You can very well export project schedule to MS Project and MS Excel using ZilicusPM but to import existing project as a template in ZilicusPM is pretty easy. You have to simply select project name (you can search project name too) from list of all projects and you will see options to import that project as template.

Project template with schedule & team

While re-using existing project as a template, project manager is prompted with few options. Firstly, s/he select desired project to import. Secondly, project manager can decide whether s/he would like to use just task schedule or task schedule with the team also.

In case of first option, only task schedule is imported from existing project and all tasks from original projects are scheduled with reference to new project timeline, considering new holidays and weekends. Second option allows project manager to invite same project team members and also retain their original task assignments.
