Cloning a template project

June 4, 2019 at 5:33pm
Hi all!
We have a team, in this team we have multiple projects. We get to the point where we have to streamline at least the structure of each project (let's say for a simple web project : a file called "00. Research", one "01. UX", and one called "02.UI").
First I think about creating a template project containing the "right" structure for any project. In my head, it was as simple as duplicating "Project Template" and rename it. But we can't duplicate project, sadly.
Do you have any recommendation about how using figma to standardize our project structure? (we already use the "cover" system Figma team use, with status, logo and file name using the team library).

Here is my project structure:

What issues do you have with duplicating a Project Template?
Why can't you duplicate the project? I do it all the time. Just select multiple files, duplicate them all, drag the duplicate into a new project. (Not trying to sound mean, but just curious.)
