do you need to copy tasks into other project areas? If you open the tasks in the web editor, one of the action buttons in the upper right lets you "move or copy" into other project area. This copies summary, description and links of the work item, but not comment history.

If you need to have multiple copies of the same kind of task within one project area, you can make a template out of a task. Creating template is only available in Eclipse client. Instantiating a task from template can be done from web client as well as Eclipse client.

"Create work item copy" is only available in Eclipse client, if you need to copy arbitrary work items within the same project area. Please submit an Enhancement Request on if you want this capability in the web client.
