In Virtual Surveyor, you can save your layer categories and the materials used for stockpiles in a template that can be reused for each new project.


Create a Template

First, you'll need to create or open a project that contains the layer structure and/or the materials you would like to save. 

Once you have your layers and/or materials created:

  1. Go to File (via the Backstage View).
  2. Click Save As Template.
  3. Give a name to your template.
  4. Click Confirm to save it.

Assign a Template to a Project

  1. Create a new project.
  2. Choose the appropriate template in the dropdown menu. 
  3. Click Create Project to create a new Virtual Surveyor project that contains the template layer structure and/or materials.

Note: a template can only be applied when creating a new project.

Rename or Delete Templates

To rename or delete templates, go to the Settings panel in the Backstage View (File > Settings > Templates). 


Tips and Tricks 

  • Your templates are stored with your Virtual Surveyor ID and they will be available to you regardless of the device you work from.
