Saving a workspace as a template

You can save a Groove workspace as a template file (in compressed .gsa format) to use as the basis for creating new workspaces. The saved template file preserves the following workspace features:

  • The collection of tools and custom tool names (if any).

  • The workspace name.

  • (Optional): The contents in all tools.

  • (Optional): The list of members in the workspace.

Note:  You cannot save a SharePoint workspace or a shared folder as a template.

To save a Groove workspace as a template file, do the following:

  1. On the File tab, click Save & Send, and then click Workspace as Template.

  2. Select a path and filename in the Save As dialog box or accept the default location, and click Save.

    Tip: If you accept the default location (the Groove Workspace Templates folder in My Documents), the workspace template file will display in the file list when you create a new workspace from a template.

  3. Optional but recommended: Set a password to protect the archive content.

  4. Click OK.

The workspace is saved as workspace name.gsa.
