    1. Choose Fill from Template.

    2. In the Pre-fill Parts of this Work Mode from a Template window, copy the required information from the template.

    Note Note

    The templates available for pre-fill, are dependent on the work mode type, and single or recurrent time pattern. So, when you choose Fill from Template, only those templates based on the current work mode and time pattern will be fetched.
