How do I copy a project and then rename it to use as a new Project ?

I just want to copy an existing Project and rename it and tweak a few things to use as another project.

Hi @Robert Nowitzke , 

When it comes to company managed projects, in the screen "Add project details" (which you get after a few choices) you can check the option "Share settings with an existing project" and with that you create a project with the same schemes. Is that what you're looking for?

Regards, Marco

Hi @Robert Nowitzke

Can you clarify what you mean by tweekaing?  If it's just a name change, but all configurations remain the same (screens, workflows, issues types) as another project, you can use the share configuration option.

What about the source project are you trying to copy - the issues in it or the configuration?

Are you working with a Company Managed project or a Team Managed project?
