Anyone actually understand how the creation of workspaces and worksets happens ? I've watched all the videos, read all the stuff on here and still I can't get projects set up where I want - I'm working in "Building Examples" not a dedicated folder set of my choice.
I get a workspace created but trying to get a workset created with all the sub folders and based on the UK template doesn't seem possible unless I use the "Building Examples" as my workspace - which I don't want. Frankly I'm getting brassed off with it.
Anyone get any ideas ? I'll try anything, anything especially on a Friday ............
I suspect the templates are stored within that "Building Examples" workspace on your C drive, so the new location on the server cannot see these. Our OpenBuildings team can certainly assist with configurating this for you, however I should mention for now you can actually go ahead and just create the new Workset without the Template - it should then work fine.

I've tried copying the templates over but that doesn't work. Also I've tried creating a project without a template but not all the sub folders are created ...... I'm getting really frustrated.
In addition to copying over there are one or two config files that would need to be pointed to the right location - I will log a Service Request now for you so the OpenBuildings config guys here can take care of this.
I know what you mean about the additional subfolders - but that is perfectly fine. When a Workset is created with no template (ie as here) it will create the Design, Output and Standards subfolders as below, which are all you need.

Thank you Shane as ever, you're a star - have a good weekend
:) Thanks Graham, any time! You too, enjoy.
I have the same problem as above. Can you please raise a service request for me too. I would like the templates to be available on our server so anyone in the company can use the template as currently if different people in the company open any projects created using UK template, all wall, roof, window types are lost and have to be set up again.
Thanks for the concern. We have a raised a ticket on your behalf. Please try communicating from there.
