Is there a current status on the ability to copy a bucket? You have copy a task and copy a whole plan but no ability to copy a bucket. I sometimes have the need to have dozens of 'plans' that are very similar and with only a small number of tasks in each. Instead of creating many separate plans we have one plan and in it each bucket is a separate instance. One bucket is a 'template' that contains the tasks with labels, checklists, etc. and we need to copy that template to another bucket and only update the dates.
Is this functionality planned? Seems odd you can do a task or a whole plan but not a bucket. Thank you.

I'm right with you, @Steve Mitchell. Having to individually duplicate tasks in Microsoft Planner/Project almost makes the system more cumbersome than it is worth. I would love to be able to copy entire buckets or select multiple tasks to be copied at the same time.

Hi there I was wondering if this was still being considered as being able to copy a bucket or multiple tasks at a time would be really helpful. It would also be great if a task added to the bottom instead of the top because any list works top to bottom @Si Meng

Same here! We spend a lot of time in our project teams copying many individual tasks. The ability to copy a bucket, or multiple tasks would save us a great amount of time and help prevent accidental omissions. :)

It is possible using Power Automate if that's helpful.

@WPubAssociateEditor I don't know how MS prioritizes these things but you would think that this would be a higher priority than aesthetics like backgrounds, etc. I can't afford to keep waiting for simple stuff like this.
@williamzNet Great idea but we should have to go through those gyrations when it can be done in a few clicks in the app just like the other copy functions.
For now I have given up on this and am using a 3rd party tool by Apps4.Pro called Planner Manager. It certainly isn't ideal but it's pretty powerful what you can do with import function. I will export tasks, massage them quickly in excel then import them via planner manager. Again not elegant but it works for me for now.
