Changing the template of an existing sheet

I created a new sheet with "Task List" template. I want to change it to a "Project Sheet" template. How can I do that?

    Hi Srini-- There isn't a way to change a template type after creating a sheet from it, but you can fairly easily turn your "Task List" into a "Project Sheet" by enabling dependencies! To do this, right-click any column header and select Project Settings, then check the box for Dependencies Enabled. This will prompt you to add or identify the Project columns in your sheet--Predecessors and Duration, specifically. You'll then be able to use the project management functionality in Smartsheet. Hope this helps!
