Add a new project or duplicate an existing one

Projects are the foundation of Rentman. All projects - short events or big productions - start by adding a new project in Rentman.

In this article, we explain how to add a new project. You can watch our tutorial video, and read our step-by-step written instructions.

For more information about all the ways you can use projects for, read our article Using projects in Rentman.-

Create a new project

  1. Go to the Projects module.
  2. Click Add.
  3. The most efficient way to create a new project is by choosing a project template for your new project. This is useful for saving time and effort. You can, however, also choose to start with a Blank project.
  4. If you have selected a project template, select a starting date. All time periods of the time schedule will be copied over. Then you can change the start and end hour of each period to match your new needs.
  5. Click Preview to see more information about the project (like Time schedule or Equipment/Functions groups).
  6. Click Select to create the project.

Now you can adjust the project details to your needs, starting from the General tab.

Duplicate an existing project

Duplicating is useful when your new project will contain largely the same information as another project. Duplicating can save time and effort, because you can simply edit the information of the project that you've duplicated.

  1. Go to the Projects module.
  2. Select Select.png the project you want to duplicate.
  3. Click the More actions button More.PNG, and choose Duplicate.

    A copy of the original project will now appear in the overview.

  4. You are now ready to fill in information in the General tab of your project.

    Read our article about the general information of projects for all available options.
