copper support words state
"Copper Projects will sunset end 2023 and new users will not be able to use the Project section."
The question i need answering now is :
Will all Copper Project features be closed at end of 2023.
Is there any point in developing projects and workflows in for our team
using copper projects
Yep, that's what sunset means—I wouldn't recommend using the project section anymore or investing in using it at all. Copper will be killing off that area end of 2023.
My guess is they won't just kill it off, assuming some of their larger customers are using it or don't want to lose the data, so it might not just vanish, but it won't be getting any updates, nor will any bugs be fixed.
For all intents and purposes, I'd stay away from using it, and I'd get all of your data out of it.
You can use the Copper Pipelines section for projects (spinning up a new pipeline, and using stages to be project milestones instead of relying on tasks).
Or you can use a proper Project Manager—We've personally switched to Motion.
Best of luck!
@ProACT Sam, thanks for posting! Your understanding is correct - Projects will be removed as a feature in later 2023/early 2024. So I do not recommend you implement any new workflows that involve them with your team. Instead, check if using Pipelines for project management is a good alternative.
@alex mentioned, you might also consider using a purpose-built project management tool. It really depends on what your team needs.
