Ability to Add Custom Templates

As Blueworks is a tool that is used across our company, different departments projects are mapped from a specific view point or with a specific focus on how the Customer interacts with the process, or how a System functions etc. This leads to differing needs for the "Details" window, and the listed fields.

It would be beneficial if there was the ability to add custom Templates, that allow us to have a set list of Process Properties fields visible, rather than each process requiring us to customise this on a map per map basis.

    Hello Swapnil, thank you for your response.

    This is something I hadn't considered and is something I will try in the interim.

    My only feedback relying on this method, is that it essentially makes the "Template" function obsolete, not to mention the images of the existing ones appear to be from older versions of the tool and do not represent the current state.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Darren, thank you for submitting the idea. Will you be able to achieve the same thing by having a Space full of "template" Blueprints and then copy them into a Blueprint that you need to customize?
