Copy and Paste Tasks

    Looking for a good cheat to get your project plan finished even faster? Rather than entering task details from scratch, use the Copy and Paste option by following these simple steps.  Start by reviewing the video below:


    We've designed the Inspire Planner interface to be as intuitive as possible to make it easy for you to navigate and perform actions you are already familiar with. Copying and pasting tasks within the Project Task list is as simple as using the Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V keyboard functions.


    First, select the tasks you wish to copy. Click on a task to select it. If you wish to select multiple tasks, then hold down your Ctrl key and click on each task you want to copy. If the tasks you are copying are adjacent to each other, you can click on the first task to select it and then hold down your Shift key and click on the last task. This will highlight all the tasks between the two tasks you clicked on.

    After you've selected the tasks you wish to copy, click on Ctrl + C. Then navigate to a row within the project where you'd like to paste the copied tasks and press Ctrl + V.


    You can then make the necessary adjustments to the tasks you pasted such as indentations, adjusting duration, start and finish dates, predecessors, status, etc.


    Once you are finished and would like to save your changes, click on the Save Project Plan icon in the Project Toolbar on the left.


    Please note that you can copy and paste a maximum of 1000 task rows at a time.
