Chapter 4. Managing Project Files > Creating and Using Templates

Creating and Using Templates

A template is a project file that contains a typical or standard set of tasks or resources that is used as a blueprint or starting point for creating similar new project files. Microsoft Project provides 12 sample templates, but you can create your own templates as well. For example, you might create a template that lists a standard set of tasks that are common to a type of project you perform repeatedly. Likewise, if the same group of people is always involved in your projects, you can create a template that contains the resource information so you won’t have to enter it for each new project file. Each template file has an .mpt extension.

Opening Template Files

When you open a template, you are opening a copy of the file, not the original template. You use this copy as a starting point for a new project.
