Reuse

If your projects contain items that often are the same or differ slightly, reuse can help you work more efficiently. You can reuse items over multiple projects and synchronize them, if needed.

You can only duplicate items to sets of the same item type. For example, if you have two requirement sets in a project created from the same item type then you can duplicate and move items between these sets. Child items behave much the same as sets: if you reuse items to a parent item, making them child items, they must be the same item type as the parent item.

Tip

If you have several items that are reused regularly, put them in a central project so future changes to items can easily be maintained from one central location.

Note

For instance, during reuse, relationships can automatically be created that are inconsistent with the relationship rules of a specific project.
