    Thanks for your feedback on Copy plan!

    We’re planning on pursuing the following improvements to copy plan:
    1) Enable users to copy a plan within an existing group
    2) Copy plan in Teams

    Currently we are booked through November working on three BIG initiatives, but should have an update on scheduling soon after.

    In the meantime, we’d love to hear how you’re currently using copy plan and any other improvements we should pursue.

    Thanks again for your patience and feedback!

    We need the ability to create a single plan template and duplicate it for each of our 20+ client projects. Each plan needs to have the same tasks (hence a template), but the plans need to be independent of each other. This is an urgent must-have in order for us to use Planner and Teams. team

    The duplicate behavior is so counterintuitive. If you copy a plan, it should be a copy, not a link to the same plan. We need the ability to create a single plan template and duplicate it for each of our 20+ client projects. Each plan needs to have the same tasks (hence a template), but the plans need to be independent of each other. I'm shocked that this seemingly basic functionality is not possible.
