Scale it up: How can I copy a control as template?

Increase efficiency by setting up a control as template and creating copies of it to be customized.

Where the same control is to be created for multiple users or entities with minor changes, it is more efficient to copy the template created and edit it as required.

Tip! Copying a control template will enable you to reduce errors by ensuring that timelines and control structures are aligned across the organization.
