1. Creating workspace templates

<p>Room templates are especially useful for classes that have similar content each semester, such as introductory lectures. The template function allows you to copy entire rooms rather than individual entries.</p>

<p>Once you have created a room template, you can select it when <a href="/node/333">creating a new project room</a> later. All content and settings of the existing room will be copied to the new room, with the exception of personal data.</p>

<ol>
    <li class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden">Enter the project room you want to use as a template. Open the <a href="/node/340">settings</a>. Click the third menu point, &ldquo;Additional.&rdquo; Scroll down to the &ldquo;Template&rdquo; section.</li>
    <li class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden">Check the box next to &ldquo;Provide this workspace as a template for new workspaces&rdquo; (Fig. 1). Now, choose your &ldquo;target group&rdquo; from the dropdown menu below. This specifies who can use your template: only you (the moderator of the &ldquo;old&rdquo; room), all users of the room, or all users of CommSy.</li>
    <li class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden">You can enter a description in the text field to help you remember the content of the template later.</li>

<p><strong>Creating a new room from a template</strong></p>

<p>Once you have saved your template, you can use it when creating a new project room. To do this, select the name of the template from the dropdown menu (Fig. 2).</p>

<p><span class="insert-image-with-text insert-image-with-text-main-content-large_description"><img alt="" class="insert-image-with-text_image image-main-content-large_description" src="/sites/default/files/styles/main-content-large/public/pictures/buchseiten/inhaltemehrfachnutzen-1-raumvorlageerstellen-abb2.jpg" title=" Creating a new room and selecting a template" /> <span class="insert-image-with-text_description">Fig. 2: Creating a new room and selecting a template</span></span></p>

<p class="tipp"><span id="cke_bm_126C">&nbsp;</span><strong>Tip:</strong> Project rooms created from a template have exactly the same functions as any other project room. You can add new content and edit/delete existing content as usual.</p>
