Can I add a default module/work type to existing projects?

When a project is created it automatically inherits the list of default work types and modules from the Settings & Defaults section of your account. But what happens when you add a new default? Existing projects will not automatically inherit default work types and modules created after the project.

The newly created work type or module will need to be added to each existing project by following these steps. You can either do this in bulk or at the project level. See below for both options.

To assign in bulk:

  1. Navigate to “Default work types” or “Default Modules” under Settings and Defaults:
  2. Settings & Defaults

  3. Click on the “Add to an existing project” icon next to the work type or module:
  4. Add to an existing project

  5. Check the box next to each existing project that should inherit this default and click Save:
  6. Select existing project dialog

Once these steps are completed the default work type or module will appear on the project profile page and will become available in the select menus when creating or updating a task for that project.

To assign default work types or modules at the Project level:

  1. From the project profile page, click on “Estimated Work & Rates” or “Modules” in the left side nav:
  2. Project work types and modules

  3. Click on the “Add a worktype ” or “module”:
  4. Add work type button

  5. Select the available work types/modules from the drop down & click Save:
  6. Select work type
