Use this procedure to create a new Watch Window template or modify an existing Watch Window template.

Tip: To create a new Watch Window template using the main data-entry window, you must modify an existing template and save the modified template with a different name.

  1. With a plan open, choose Tools > Watch Window > Show and select a template. (Note that if you have not previously created a template, you can choose one of the default templates included with Planner CS.) The Watch Window will open at the bottom of the main data-entry window.

    • To remove a field from the open Watch Window, right-click a field in the Watch Window and choose Remove from Watch Window.
    • To add a field to the open Watch Window, right-click a field in the main data-entry window and choose Watch Window > Add Line.
  3. To save the open Watch Window, right-click the Watch Window and choose Save Template.
  4. In the Save Watch Window Template dialog, do one of the following:

    • To create a new template, enter a unique name in the Save Template As field and click OK.
    • To replace an existing template, highlight the template you want to replace, click OK, and then click Yes when prompted.
