Today we would like to talk about Access community templates. You probably have noticed them when you create a new database using "File...New" in Access 2010.
Templates are a great way for users to get started more quickly and get to the solution they need a lot faster, and they are a terrific vehicle for Access developers to make themselves known across the world by virtue of their community contributions, and as we have frequently seen, to generate leads and opportunities for new business and consulting engagements. More importantly, templates are a good vehicle to help many users who are not as fortunate as we are to have the technical skills we have as Access professionals.
We receive a lot of emails from developers interested in creating templates. Many of the questions are process related, and we thought that we could answer many of them by describing the flow a developer will need to follow to create and share a community template. Obviously this assumes you already have a solution to share.
Again, we will be using Access 2010. We will use a template called "Submitting an Access Template" that contains only one table and one form. The table is the list of the steps required to submit a template, with pictures and descriptions.
Here we go:
And just like that, people all over the world will be able to download your template from Office.com and from Access 2010 directly! We need to do perform a small check to make sure your template does not contain material that is offensive or otherwise negative, but most templates are published the same day or the next. Here is our Submitting an Access Template template already published.
Good luck with your templates!
Thanks for the heads up!
