How to generate a group skeleton from given group stgructure

In DT3 I have a group structure and document tree like this:

For a new travel plan now in 2024 I would like to create a new empty structure like the one above without the documents and another top-level name. – Or I would like to convert this document tree into a group template which I then could apply even in 2025, 2026 and beyond…

Is there a simple, automated way to do this?

Thank you for any pointers! :smile:

And no, you don’t have to create a whole new database to use the ideas in the post.

Super cool, thanks.

One question about this: I have exported the old group structure (which obviously does contain documents) as Template. So I have a lovely folder EuropeTravels.dtTemplate with last years documents in there. Now I need to delete the documents out of it – for me the easiest way to do this is in Terminal (with find and xarg).

But what about these proprietary DEVONtech_storage files. Do I leave them in there?
