Duplicate Column from Main Item to Subitem

I want the the subitem to have the same columns as my main item. The main item has dropdowns and status columns that would be time consuming to recreate in the subitem columns. Is there a way to match the columns in my main item to the subitem?

save the item column as a template and then add it to the subitem

I need this too. The suggestion to save the column as a template is a good one but it is greyed out. See screenshot.

I know I’m late to the game here, but I just found a way to get this to work. After you have the item columns how you want them: create an item and then at left click the three little dots, and “convert to subitem”. You have to choose a parent item.

Then when it tries to match columns, you can tell it to add the column instead. And then it does! I hope this helps (and makes sense). It works best if you don’t have any subitems yet.


THIS WORKED! Thanks :slight_smile:
