Expand and Collapse in Select Template window
To enable a user to quickly locate a relevant group of templates, particularly when a search returns a large list, Expand and Collapse options have been added to the Find Templates window, when creating a document.
Template Type groups can be Expanded/Collapsed, using the arrow to open and close each group, making it easier to find the template you are looking for.
The views will differ for each Document Centre, e.g. if the user is in the Global Documents Centre, only non-contact library templates will be displayed, if they are in a client, only client library templates will be displayed and so on.
The customised view settings are saved on closing i.e. when the user reopens the Find Templates window it displays the previously saved settings.
You can use the filter row to filter by Description, Library, Template Type, Assignment Template, Document Type and Enabled.
The fields provide a dropdown listing the entries that are in the grid for that field. The exceptions are the Description field which allows you to type in the criteria to filter on, and the Enabled check box.
Use * before and after a word as a wildcard.
The columns in the grid are as follows.
