Add us as another customer who wants this feature. We have a group that runs hundreds of small projects a month, and they are basically cookie cutter for various customers sites. This would make the projects feature practical for them to use, as well as promote best practice / patterns for their projects.
As with Genny's request - hoping someone from Jive can respond. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
I'm not from Jive but it looks like there'll be some sort of Template functionality for all places (and by extension Projects) available in Jive 7.
