Copying External System Links

External System Links can be copied which makes it even easier to configure your synchronisations for new projects.  Copying an External System Link will retain all of your configurations including mappings (where fields are applicable in the new project), set tasks and schedules.

You can copy an External System Link from either the External Systems configuration area in the Admin Section or from the Resources Tab.
