    We have multiple products/projects running in parallel and I have set up multiple projects for each. I have to edit the XML setting file for all of these to align with TFS. Am I able to create a new template and simply assign this when creating a new project or am I restricted to the list provided ?

    If I am restricted, am I able to edit one of the shipped templates ?

    Hello Tony,

     From TeamPulse it is not possible to add new or change a default project template. User interface will only allow you to save the xml template and apply it through advanced settings each time you wish to create a new project with that template. However, I see that adding custom project templates could be useful and I have added it as a feature request in our Ideas and Feedback portal.
     Another solution I can suggest you is to change any of the default templates from the database - for example Scrum. What you need to do is check the id of the project you have modified. You can find it in the url after "/#/Project/". Then open sql management studio and execute the following query:

    UPDATE [TeamPulse].[dbo].[ProjectTemplate] 
       SET [Template] = (SELECT Settings FROM [TeamPulse].[dbo].[Project] WHERE ProjectID = <id of your modified project>) 
    WHERE Name= '<template name you wish to change>' 

     This way from now on projects that use Scrum template(or whichever template you have modified) will have your custom settings. Just make sure that you keep the current structure of the xml and only values are changed.

    Please let us know if that worked for you and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other question or suggestions.
