A Project Template is used in project creation. Repeating project criteria is maintained for regular clients, projects shared with Vendors, or projects created with the Automation Widget. Use of a template streamlines the submission process and reduces errors.
Project Templates are created from existing projects.
To save a current project as a template, follow these steps:
To edit a project template, follow these steps:
From the Setup page, scroll down to the section and click on Project Templates.
Click on a template.
Change project settings and click Save.
The changes are applied to the selected template.
Note that changing the settings in a project template does not affect the settings of your existing projects created on the basis of that template.
The list tools in the upper right corner of the list are used to sort, filter and customize the list of Project Templates.
To create a new project using a template, follow these steps:
Project Managers can assign providers (Linguists or Vendors) to each of the project workflow steps using an existing Project Template.
The number of workflow steps and the source language in the chosen project template must match those in the new project or the project template will not appear in the list. Target languages can be different, but at least one of the target languages must be the same.
Assigning providers from a template will not overwrite any existing assignments. Providers can be assigned from multiple templates as long as the templates match the criteria.
To assign a provider from a template, follow these steps:
From the Job Table, either:
Select specific jobs to assign providers
Select none to either assign providers to all jobs
Select none to assign some providers to some jobs across all workflows.
Click Tools and select Assign providers from a Template.
Select a project template from the dropdown menu and optionally to.
A list of defined workflow steps and potential providers is displayed. Clicking on the workflow step presents provider details.
Providers from selected template are assigned to the selected job(s).
