I have been thinking about this more. I can have two variables in that are prompted for user input when using the template
t_projname=Name of Project
t_ASMname=Name of Assembly
and set up the "files and folders" portion of the template like this...
is there a better way of doing this?
I think you've answered your own question. The only thing I can suggest, if you haven't already done it, is to map t_projname to a folder card variable so that if the user right clicks in the project folder that wil be automatically filled out for him.
I created a template card and have a variable in the template card called "Project Name"
I added this card to the template and mapped it to t_projname. t_projname is set as "prompt to user". the variable is used in the folder set up and it runs successfully.
however, after the folders are created, "Project Name" is not showing up in the text field of the "data card"
ok I figured out how to link the folder card variables to template variabes. in "files and folders", right click folder and click properties, then use "copy variables" tab.
I have a group called "Engineering" that does not allow permissions to "add or delete a folder", but I want to give members of the Engineering group these permissions when using this folder template.
I clicked all the folders in the template and added "explicit set rights" for "Add a delete a file", and when a member of the engineering group tries to use the template, a message box pops up and sayd "Could not create folder. Cause: You don't have permission to perform this action.
what am I doing wrong in setting up explicit rights for this template?
