Move or Copy Maintenance Items

After you define a maintenance item of one type (Defect, Change, Issue or Task), you might decide that the item either is better suited to another type or forms a good template for items of other types. If so, you can either move or copy the item to the other types.

Access    Select element | Element | Maintenance    (Alt+4) > <item type tab> | right-click on item in list to move/copy   or
Select element | Element | Element Browser (Alt+9) > Maintenance folder | right-click on item to move/copy
