Click the "New" button to create a new template.
The "Import" button is useful if you have an AT Internet API URL that a colleague has sent you. By copying the URL into the designated pop-up, the Designer will dynamically rebuild the analysis contained in the URL.
The "Save" button lets you save any edits made to a template. You'll find all saved templates in the "My custom templates" section.
Tip: When you create and save a template, data for that template is pre-calculated every day, offering you greater speed and optimal performance for data retrieval. We therefore strongly suggest you create templates for any regular requests.
"Save as" button
The "Save as" button lets you save your template under a new name.
Tip: Use this method to duplicate your template across several sites to avoid having to recreate the template for each site.
Private and public templates
If you've created a template and wish to share it with other users in your organisation, set it to public mode. By doing so, your template will be available to all users who have access to the site on which your template is based.
- When you open a template that was created by another user, this user's name will be displayed in parentheses in the "save" bar.
- To access all templates created by all users, select the "All templates" radio button from the Data Query homepage. If you select the "My templates" radio button, you can access your own templates. You can also access the Data Query homepage by clicking the "Custom templates" tab in the navigational menu.
Find a template by searching for its name using the search tool.
Tip: Public templates may only be modified by their creator. However, you can "Save as" in order to make copies that you can then modify as you wish.
