Using Group Templates ensures consistent UI and integration across multiple projects within the template, removing repetitive tasks that would usually need to be completed inside each Project. Group Templates can be used, for example, when a new subsidiary has been acquired and there is the need to automate the whole product line.
Follow the steps below to create a Group Template:
The Group Template should contain all reference images and relevant master documents, .driveprojx and .drivegroup files which will form the basis of a Group Template. Include any additional files that would be required to display a functional description, when displayed in the New Group wizard, also adding a reference to the XML schema if required.
Your DriveWorks Group Template will be available and ready to install.
If a template is not displaying in DriveWorks after being installed, check that the installer or version of DriveWorks is the one currently being used, as templates are version specific.
If there is an error in the templates data it will not display.
To uninstall a Group Template please follow the steps below:
Local Disk>ProgramData>DriverWorks>[version number]>Templates>Groups
The deleted Group Template will now be uninstalled and no longer available.
