Sorry if this is already in the forum. I searched and did not see it submitted as an idea. It only comes up in other discussions.
Issue: When using copy to another sheet, the rows do not maintain their predecessor references.
Use Case: We utilize Control Center to provision our projects from a standard "PROJECT TEMPLATE". Each project has about 10 sheets and 10 reports. One of the sheets is a "WORK PLAN", which is a standard project schedule sheet (gantt chart). The "WORK PLAN" template in our "PROJECT TEMPLATE" has a very simple gantt schedule to seed the project. It does not work for most project. It would be too cumbersome to have a schedule in the template that covers every use case. Instead, we have a "SCHEDULE TEMPLATE SHEET" that has about 40 different project schedules (small project, multi phase, multi parcels, SD/DD/CD public work, hydrology projects, landscape projects, civil projects, etc) We would like to be able to highlight the rows we want in the "SCHEDULE TEMPLATE SHEET", and copy to the newly provisioned project "WORK PLAN". Unfortunately, when we do this, the predecessors are left blank in the "WORK PLAN". Some of our schedules have 100's of lines. We cannot simply do a save as from the "SCHEDULE TEMPLATE SHEET" and overwrite the new "WORK PLAN" because Control Center keeps track of each sheets unique identifier. This is necessary should we make system wide changes to our projects. I have also seen the work arounds others have posted (using excel, inserting rows to get then aligned between source and destination sheet, then copy paste just the predecessor info) Frankly, they are cludgy and prone to user error when deployed across multiple managers/teams.
Request: Include the predecessor row numbers (relative) when copy to another sheet. This feature works when copying within the same sheet. The predecessors will update relative to the new row numbers.
