Is it possible to copy summary tasks and its dependencies (using eclipse or Web interface)?


Don Yang commented Jan 29 '14, 12:06 a.m.

More info is required to understand the requirements.
. Do you mean "summary" in the task workitem or you have got a type of workitem called summary task?
. what is the dependencies for the summary tasks?
. what is the RTC version?

Hi Don,

- The RTC version 4.0.2

- I have a summary task (e.g. Development), that has some children tasks (e.g. Develop feature 1, develop feature 2, etc.).


My question is: How can I copy all of them? or How can I copy multiple (selected) tasks in the same plan?

what do you mean by 'Copy'.. do you want to do this more than once? (make a workitem template of the group of workitems).

copy to another project area, or ??

a little more of the use case would help us

Hi Don,

- Copy means duplicate de list of work items selected.

- The list of items (source and destination)  belongs to the same plan.

I need it to be more productive while detailing the plan tasks (e.g. when I detect that there are groups of task that has the same value to most of the attributes).
