Sharing templates

Use the Import templates toolbar button to import templates in XML format. When you import a template, a copy of the template is saved in the My templates folder. You can then edit the template's XML to make changes to it.

You can also export a template to save it as a new file and then share that template file with others.

To import a template
  1. Click Tools > Provisioning > OS provisioning.
  2. On the toolbar, click the Import templates button.
  3. In the Import file box, type the path and filename of the XML file, or click Browse and select the file.
  4. Click Import. This imports the template into the My templates folder.

The file is saved as an .xtp (XML template page) file. In the My templates folder, the imported template is listed with the original filename, followed by the date and time of import.

To export a template
  1. Click Tools > Provisioning > OS provisioning.
  2. Select Public or My templates or one of their subgroups.
  3. Double-click a template. In the Template view, click XML.
  4. Click Export. Select the location where you want to save the template, and click Save.

The file is saved as an .xtp (XML template page) file. If you're exporting a template containing UTF-only characters, the title will not display correctly in Internet Explorer. The non-displayable characters in the template title will appear as underscores. You can change the template title through the Save As dialog box.
