Office templates by Group Policy
Posted on 2014-02-24
Hi, we configured our Group Policy to force usage of office templates from specific path (Network) for Word and Powerpoint.
*Also important to know that we want to add additional templates and not to change the original "Normal.dotm"
we created shared folder for read to everyone and configured the policy, its looks working but every time the users trying to exit (close the word/powerpoint or outlook) they get popup that ask them to Save AS (the default) "normal.dotm" and its very annoying.. someone know what should be the solution for that ?
* i guess the office try to write into that file but its read only so its popup the save AS but what will happen if i give read write permission ? there are 150 users in our company and i dont think it will be a good idea to let this "normal" template be writable...
*There are also various versions of office used in our company (Office 2007/2010/2013)
and no one use any specific third party add-on that would like to write into "normal" template.
I hope someone could help us.
