Project Server 2010 Site Template Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a Project Server 2010 environment in which there are several site templates created and there are about 500 projects.

    Now, I have the requirement of changing some templates (add a list, some fields in a existing Risks and Issues lists, etc.)

    How Can I update current template?

    If I update current template, Will the sites created be updated with the new lists and fields? Or Should I do these additions by hand?

    Thanks!

  • Hi José

    You'll need to apply the changes by hand, unless you use a 3rd party tool.

  • there are two ways :

    1.You can create a new template which will contain new modification as you said list , library.

    then deploy it and assign it to EPT.

    All the new project will have project site as per new template.

    2. Yes you can update current template. After updation you can save that modified template with same name or with new name, it will work .

  • @Kirteshtiw thanks! Do you know any good resource with steps?

    @Ben thanks, good to know. Do you know any 3rd party tool for doing that?

  • I knew you'd ask that!  I don't know of any, but a quick search with your favourite search engine should give a few options.

  • Hi,

    Another related question,

    We have created custom Web Template by saving as a template one site. Later we have created 20 sites using that Web Template. And now we want to update this template to "Site Template v2". We create other Web Template and now we have two "Site Template v1" and "Site Template v2". Should we remove "Site Template v1" from Solutions Gallery? Or it is neccesary while exists sites created with version 1?

  • It won't matter if you remove it, but I tend to leave them there as they take no space and I like to have them as a reference.
