Standardizing Configuration for all users in Enterprise Edition

Recommended Posts

We are evaluating Asset Manage and have installed the Enterprise version. We see that in Preferences we can make numerous changes to the system. Some of the changes are global. However, some, specifically the column layouts, are specific to the user logged in and are not global.

Is there a way to copy the settings from one user to another so that all users will start with a standard configuration setup and eliminate the need to manual recreate the setup for each user?

Thanks.

Hi, regarding the column settings, they are stored in a file called HEADERS.WCD and should be in the user's MY DOCUMENTS\AssetManage Enterprise folder.

it is possible to copy a HEADERS.WCD file to another user's local MY DOCUMENTS folder to replicate the same settings

The User defined fields, Company info and DEPRECIATION settings are stored in the program database and should be the same for all.

Most of the general settings you see in the PREFERENCE main section would be stored in the Windows Registry which would make it hard to replicate these settings to other machines.

Please note that if you have several users using a particular machine you can install using the ALL USERS option which would mean all users of that machine would share the same Windows Registry settings.

The column layout is the primary concern right now. So, knowing that it is contained in the HEADERS.WCD file takes care of that.

Within the Preferences, we can easily point to a shared folder for the images and reports. I jus didn't want to have to go thru the column configuration for each computer/user of the system.

Thanks for the info.
