How to Clone a Project Detail Page

Posted By Posted by: EPM Partners on August 27, 2015

Project Detail Pages (PDP) are essentially ASPX files. However, copying these pages isn’t as simple as copying a document. If you copy these pages like an ordinary document, you’ll notice that the copied web part page does not retain any web parts in it. This is because web parts information is stored in the SharePoint Content database. Use the following procedure to copy web part pages.

  1. Go to Site Actions -> Manage Content and Structure
  2. Go to the Project Detail Pages library
  3. Select the Project Detail Pages you want to copy
  4. Click Actions -> Copy
  5. Copy to any other document library or folder
  6. Navigate to that document library or folder
  7. Use the drop-down for that page and choose Edit Properties
  8. Rename the page, update any other information, and click Save
  9. Select the page, then click Actions -> Move
  10. Choose the Project Detail Pages folder
  11. Then open the page and you should have an exact copy under the new page name
