Hi

 

We have set up our own templates which have to be used as they contain specific iProperty information.

 

This information, depending on which template is picked, decides which of 2 lifecycles the file enters in the vault.

 

However there seems to be some other templates that we dont want to use....when you click the drop down beside the new icon on quick access toolbar it access some random templates?

 

anyone know where these templates are so we can remove them, so we only allow users to use specific templates that met the criteria for entering our lifecycle?

 

Attached picture shows these templates we dont want to see as there is no control for them

 

Cheers

Graeme,

Those are the default out of the box templates.

If you don't want them used move them in windows explorer to a resort location.

I always hit the "New" icon (the one you make mention of) and all of the templates show up in the

directory specified in the master project file.

Cheers Scott

 

Yeah I also hit the new icon but some of the other 30 users here have been accidentally using the drop down method thus causing problems in the vault.

 

Where are these out the box templates located so I can move them

 

thanks

That is why I suggested moving those templates, because here we have done that

and when the drop down is selected, it comes up with a message stating those template

cannot be found.

If you go under manage>projects and look at the master project what does it tell you for the

template files location?

Try looking in this folder.

If they are not here then I would do a search under "My Computer" for them.
