Template Folder

Ensuring you backup your templates folder is an essential requirement for all customers for this release. As one of our updates will directly overwrite your current template, we recommend renaming your template folder so that it is not overwritten in the upgrade, but is still available. Instructions can be found on the video below.

  • Note that the agency customised documents are in the renamed folder and will not be read by users Strata Master after the upgrade. as Strata Master looks to a folder named 'Template'. 
  • Please ensure that, after upgrading, the folder is renamed back to 'Template' and the new folder is renamed to 'Template vsxxx' whether done by IT or User.
  • Any new template/s issued in the upgrade are moved from the 'Template vsxxx' folder to the 'Template' folder, so it will be available to users. Refer the release notes below.
