Import checklist templates

You can import a batch of Field checklist templates when you start a new Field project, to make the checklist setup easy.

Bear in mind that this is a one-off import. Any subsequent changes that the owner of the checklists makes to them will not flow through to your project.

To import checklist templates, you’ll need to have saved to your computer a .templates file that has been sent to you by another Field administrator, or that you’ve exported yourself from another project.

  1. Log into Aconex and select the project into which you want to import the checklist templates.
  2. Go to Field/Settings.
  3. Under Inspections, click Templates.
  4. Click Import templates. Remember, once you do this, this button is disabled as importing a checklist is a one-off event.
  5. Find the .templates file that your collaborator sent you.
  6. Click OK.
  7. The checklists will now appear in your Templates list.

From this point, you can send the .templates file to collaborators in other organizations, or on other Field projects, to save you having to re-enter each template item by item.
