Is there a way to create templates ?

Hi! For now it’s only possible to create a copy of a plan and apply that to a new group, which essentially is not the same as a template.

Although a template function is planned!

@adam deltingerI imagine this use case is the same as that available in Trello (so many templates) and materially the same as for most Office products where Microsoft provides a huge array of starter templates.   There are so many common administrative activities that bundle common tasks such as Onboarding, Event Planning, that could be made available.   Rather than facing the daunting task of creating a plan from scratch we just reach for Planner templates and away we go.
