Train Parameters: Template Manager


In PCS is possible to create templates for Train Parameters in two ways:

  • Go to Administration > Template Manager > Train Parameters
  • In the Applicant Timetable section of a dossier (Please refer to the "Editing Train Parameters" document below)

For the first case, the following screenshot offers the option:


Template Manager for Train Parameters

Note: Before creating a train parameters template please be sure to check the reference documents below for a detailed overview of the different fields and their functionality. 

In the template screen, it is important to check the Timetable period before adding a new template. Otherwise, the template won't be available if a different period is chosen.

Also, it is important to notice what IM the template is related. Again, later on, the template won't be available if the user wants to apply it to a different IM. 

Clicking on "Add Template" a new screen shows the options:

new template

The fields marked with an asterisk (*) at the top are obligatory:

  • Template name
  • IM agency

The fields below for the Common Train Parameters, although they show an asterisk, are not obligatory in order to save the template. 

Once the template is saved, becomes part of the table list for its timetable period. The table can be sorted by Name. Also, clicking the checkmark, the user is able to "Delete Selected".

The "Edit" button is always available if the user wants to change any value of its templates. In any case, this update won't propagate to the dossiers that used the values of the template in the past. 

Applying the templates

In order to apply any template, the user needs to be in the Applicant Timetable of a dossier:

copy from template

The "Copy from template" option can be applied to any selected section (highlighted in grey with an arrow shape)
