New Feature Request - Updating a templates setting/properties updates all existing projects that use that Template.

Post by Beniled » 04 Jan 2022, 05:09

So like I have a shit ton of projects for a particular website and I am making little adjustments to the properties and template to include more content, included URLs, and such. It would be cool if when I made a change to the template or its properties if all the projects using the template were automatically updated. So if I added a new Included URL to the template all the projects, maybe after a restart, would have that new URL in their included list. Or if I change the properties via the template, like folder naming or something, it would update those settings in the properties of all the projects.

Does that make sense?

Yes, it does make a lot of sense and this feature is already on the to-do list. Just need to figure out the interface for it. I think it'll be a separate button or menu item to update all projects of the template... It can not be started automatically, only manual action start. Because it won't be every time that you modify the template you want to update all its projects...

No, that makes a lot of sense, also is a good idea to make it a manual process so that you can test changes before rolling them out to the existing projects just in case you break something.
