The offload wizard templates feature is designed to speed up the offloading process by short-cutting the steps needed to select different copy destinations and settings. It allows you to save a series of presets that can be recalled for every offload, either automatically triggered by an associated input device or manually by selecting it from the list of templates. Templates can contain multiple copy destinations with different path wildcards for each. Also, they can store further offload settings like checksum and verification methods and file renaming patterns.
Creating a template
To start the creation of a template, open the offload wizard as usual. Once the wizard appears, you can select the copy destinations and optionally also adjust the checksum and verifications settings, path wildcards, and file renaming patterns. After you have finished setting up the offload, click the ‘gear‘ button on the top right corner and select “Save as new Template…“. At this point, a dialogue opens to name the template and optionally also associate it with an input device.
Finally, click on “Create“ and the template will be saved.
Once you have created a set of offload wizard templates, you can switch between them manually by clicking on the template name. An associated template is automatically applied once the offload wizard detects the linked input device or if you select the linked device from the input devices list. Templates show their association with an input device through an arrow symbol (←) in the templates list.
Updating a template
If you need to modify an existing template, you can do so by selecting the new settings. Once a template has been edited, it is marked with an asterisk (like “Template*“). If you want to save these changes, click the ‘gear‘ button on the top right corner and select “Update current Template“. Next, a dialogue appears that also allows you to (optionally) rename the template or change the device association. Click “Update“, and the changes are saved.
