Workspace and Folder templates are a powerful and efficient way to manage your Novell Vibe site. They enable you to customize the default features, default layout, and default access control settings of the workspaces and folders throughout your Vibe site.
For example, the Team Workspaces template is used when any team workspace is created. By default, the access control settings for the Team Workspaces template specify that only team members are able to view the team workspace. However, if you want to run a more relaxed Vibe site and allow all Vibe users to view any team workspace, you can simply modify the access control settings on the Team Workspaces template.
Changes that you make to templates affect only those workspaces and folders that are created after the template was modified.
