My company is migrating to Office 2007 on a Sharepoint 2007 platform. I am the documentation manager. IT is trying to tell me users will only be able to access workgroup templates from within Sharepoint rather than through File, New in Word. Is there a good way to store the templates in Sharepoint but have users across 27 offices access them through File, New in Word? I'm concerned about speed of running the template from remote offices or VPNs. Can it be set up so that when a user logs in to the WAN, the templates on their PC are automatically synched to the templates on Sharepoint?
