Q14482 - INFO: Report Template Folder [General Setting]
The Report Template Folder General Setting specifies the default location for Spread Report templates. Set to 'Default' to use the local client\templates folder (e.g. this would be c:\HachWIMS\Client\Templates depending on where Hach_WIMS_Client.exe is installed). Otherwise, set to any valid path (UNC or mapped)

Go to System Setup>Admin Console and click on the General Settings tab to access General Settings

When opening a report template (select File, New in Spread Report Design) or saving a template (File, Save As Template in Spread Report Design) sets the default folder where the template files will be stored. 

Example #1:  Set the default Report Template to a network share (\\hach.ewqg.com\share\RioRanchoShare\ReportTemplates) so everyone has access to the templates.

This is a system setting, therefore when any user goes to  File, New in Spread Report Design the \\hach.ewqg.com\share\RioRanchoShare\ReportTemplates will be displayed.  Users can use the Browse button to view templates that may be placed in other folders. 

When saving a template:

Example #2: Set to each user's local templates folder.  This is the location of all report templates prior to version 7.7.0.  Since each PC can have a different install location, you must enter the word "Default" to assign the default report template folder to the local templates folder under the client folder. 

PC#1: WIMS client installed to c:\hachwims\client.  With setting of "Default", the Report Template folder will be c:\hachwims\client\templates.

PC#2: WIMS client installed to e:\wims\client.  With setting of "Default", the Report Template folder will be e:\wims\client\templates.
