    Replacing Aspects on SIMS Templates

    I'm trying to replace aspects on templates in SIMS but I don't know if it's possible.

    I have a template which I want to use for every subject. I know I can clone it, then replace results sets as necessary but I would also like to replace aspects. At the moment, I have to delete the aspects that need replacing and then add new ones.

    Because the aspects I want to replace use formulae relating to other aspects, I have to delete the formulae ones, add the new aspect and then add all the formulae aspects again and it is very time consuming.

    Does anyone know a way to simply change aspects like you can with results sets?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I don't know of a way of doing what you are wanting.

    As a work around I have recently been designing my templates in a different way.

    When normally I would have an aspect for a subject and then a result set for the instance (term or data collection). I have been doing it the other way round where I have generic aspects and then attach them to result sets that specify the subject.

    This allows you to cole one template and apply it to multiple subjects without having to remake it, simply using the replace result set function.

    The summer release makes this possible.

    Thank you for this. Unfortunately, I have to work with what I have, as I am employed on an ad hoc basis by the school. I don't supposed you know when exactly the summer release comes out?

    Hi, instead of deleting the formula, then deleting the aspect to then re-add, why not just add in a new aspect, move it up next to the old one, then amend the formula to have the new aspect then delete the old aspect. I know is it still long winded but would be quicker and less likely to get the formula wrong when starting from scratch!

    Regards,

    In the past I've exported to XML, editing and reimported.

    If you cannot wait until end of June, jrma91's approach is the one I use.
