Edit standardized fields for several templates

Hi Folks,
I’m working with several templates and each template in Designer corresponds to a process in WF.
I need to change just one standardized field in all the templates.

Is there a more efficient way of doing this without having to open template by template?

Thank you all

Can I edit the section file (.html) without having to send the configuration for each change?


Hello @Lazim,

I assume that it is not the answer you are looking for but you have to open the Templates one by one in the Designer application, apply the change, save the Templates and reimport the Templates in Workflow.

Personally I would not recommend to change the section-*.html files in the C:\ProgramData\Objectif Lune\PlanetPress Workflow 8\PlanetPress Watch\OLConnect\Template directory. This, i.a., because:

a. The change may not be immediately applied in production

b. What are you going to do next time a (big) change needs to be implemented?

You could try to create everything external (so, all snippets, css, etc.) but this will require a redesign of all templates. You can even run the scripts externally (although not recommended by OL as this is unconventional and there are some security concerns - see Feature request: Ability to add remote scripts - OL Connect Professional / Designer - Upland OL User community (objectiflune.com)).

All our templates are now generalized as much as possible, where I even have an external configuration file per template to control behavior within the templates.
I still need to check whether a change in for example a rscss file will force a change (a recompile) in the template automatically.
