At least one list is mandatory when creating a project, but there's no option to use a templated list.
+1 and it would also be helpful if the option to use a template list appeared when moving a task. Ex - In the task view > Move > New Project > Enter project name or choose from template > enter list name or choose from template
Also, can the requirement for one list be removed? My use case is I have projects where lists are completed and archived/deleted and sometimes there won't be a new list a short time. I don't archive the project because I know new lists are in the pipe.
