For the C3 Plus TemplateSuite there are two ways to manage and edit template files (Global or Local).If several BCS-2 stations (C- 3 Plus applications) are to work with one template set, it is possible to store a global tempo file on a central network drive. All templates are created and saved via a defined BCS-2 station, all other BCS-2 stations access this template file and can use the stored templates for development.

Alternatively, the template files can also be saved and managed locally. An export and import of templates from other C-3 Plus stations is always possible.
