Automatically create object from templates in M-Files

Most new projects require the same elements, like milestones, timelines, and plans. And with every new project, creating all those documents from scratch is unnecessary and time-consuming.
Did you know you can create new object from template in M-Files, with all related required objects? For example, for a project with milestones and initial documents ready for use? We can easily build this with Extension Kit, more specifically, with Extended Object Templates module.

Let’s see how.

Let’s say you have a new project for which you have to create related objects.

Within M-Files you can create just one project template with all related objects. With the help of Extended Object Template, whenever you want to create a new project, related objects will automatically be created.
