General settings of newly created projects


i would like to ask if its possible to somehow change general settings of newly created projects.

Whenever i create new project doesnt matter if its Agile, Kanban or Basic, everytime its set and create itself Workflow Scheme, Screen Scheme and all other stuff, i would like to know i theres any chance to set, which Scheme will be default for every newly created projects. Thank you so much.


Have a nice day,
