How To: Create a New Project from a Project Template
Another way to create a new project is to use a pre-defined project template. This option creates the project with all of the forms, pages, fields, and Check Code that are specified in the project template. Epi Info™ 7 comes with a number of sample project templates to demonstrate its many features. These templates are located in the Project Explorer under Templates > Projects.
To use an existing project template, follow the steps below:
- Select File > New Project from Template. The New Project from Template window opens listing the available project templates.
- Select the desired project template.
- Confirm the name and location of the new project, and the data format as shown in the window and make changes as needed.
- Click OK. The Form Designer will begin constructing the forms and fields and after a few moments, the first page of the project opens in the canvas.
