Offload wizard templates

The offload wizard templates are designed to speed up the offloading process by simplifying the steps needed to select different copy destinations and settings. With the offload templates you can save a series of presets that can be recalled for every offload. The templates can contain multiple copy destinations along with different settings for each destination, like the hashing method or path wildcards.

Creating a template

In order to start the creation of a template, just start an offloading job as usual. Once the offload wizard appears, you can select the copy destination and adjust the settings for the checksum method and path wildcards (when needed). After you have finished setting up the offload, you can click on the «gear» button on the top right corner and select «Save as new Template…». At this point a dialogue opens to name the template:

Finally, click on «create» and the template will be saved.

 

Updating a template

If there’s the need to modify an existing template, you can do so by selecting the new settings, and then you can click on the «gear» button on the top right corner and select «Update current Template». The modifications will be saved to the template at this point. Once a template has been edited, it is marked with an asterisk like «Template*».

 

Selecting templates

Once you have a set of offloading templates created, you can switch between them by clicking on the template name:
