Templates can be used to create switching orders with some standard information already filled in. For example, if you frequently create switching orders with the same operations, you can add these operations to a template. You can then use the template to create a switching order and simply add the device information. The template icon is the following: .

  • Select: This tool is available only when you are creating a switching order from a template. Right-click the template in the Switching Order Library and choose Select. You are then prompted to choose a location for saving your switching order.

  • Open: When you select the Open right-click tool, you are presented with a dialog to choose whether to open a copy of the template or edit the template. If you choose to Open the template, it is copied and used to create a new switching order.

  • Delete: Right-click any switching order or template and select Delete to delete it from the library. You are then prompted to confirm that you want to delete the selected switching order or template.

  • View on Map: This tool is enabled only if you have ArcMap open. Select View on Map to view the switch order devices and outage area in ArcMap. The device(s) are highlighted on the map with a callout. When you close the Switching Order Library, the callout on the map is removed.

  • Copy/Cut/Paste: Use these tools to move switching orders and templates between folders.
