Sync Sharepoint Content Type with Local Copy of Template
Posted on 2011-02-14
I have an excel template that I have created as a "Content Type" on my sharepoint site.
At times, we need to update certain data on that Excel template. We do this within our local network via a local copy of Excel. When I save the new, updated version of the template I want it to update/sync with the "Content Type" version on the sharepoint site automatically so when a user creates a new document of that specific content type they are creating the document based on the changes we just made to the template.
I know I can do this manually, but we are planning to add many more content types to the sharepoint site, all which are regularly updated. An automatic syncronization process would be preferable.
Maybe I can do this via sharepoint as well. If I kept the original copy on our sharepoint site under some sort of other document repository that holds all our templates, maybe I could utilize sharepoint's revision control feature as well.
Is there a way of tying all this together??
