Editing Project templates

In my company, we are using a lots of Project templates customized to the various needs of our clients + certain file types.
For each client, we use from 2 to 10 different project templates, with diverse settings. This is in order to simplify the job of our PM who then don't have to customize the settings for each and every job, and rather use the appropriate template.

But this brings another issue: with any new updates, and even more when we change Studio versions, we sometimes have to update all the project templates (and we use hundreds of these!), since they sometimes don't work properly with the new version in some cases. Is there any simple way, or an application that would help us to update the project template easily, and apply the changes to all our project templates? I search for an app doing this in the app store, and didn't find any...

 

Thank you!

  • Hello @Annik Provencher ,

    As you have already mentioned, you use multiple templates for a wide variety of clients and which need updating at irregular intervals.
    Unfortunately there is not an app that can automate or simplify this process, due to the very nature of 'templates'.

    However, maybe the following app -
    appstore.sdl.com/.../
    would help simplify and speed up the PM's work, by allowing you to add a template to multiple projects?
    When migrating to a new Studio version, it is advisable to create new templates as those from an older version will often cause unwanted issues.
