Copy paste documents between client and file system

[Version: 2024 - April]
[Build: 24.05.03003] 

It is possible to copy and paste dashboards, reports and other document and file types between the TARGIT Designer client's Start menu and a local file system.    

This is useful, e.g., if search and replace operations are required for multiple files from the Shared folder. The search and replace operation can then be performed on the files outside of the TARGIT server, before being copied back to their original position. In cloud environments you do no have access to the TARGIT Server's file system

  • CTRL+C and CTRL+V works in both directions
  • Right click and copy/paste from the context menu works in both directions 
  • Drag and drop only works when dragging from the file system and dropping in the Start menu

If the file(s) already exists, you will be prompted to overwrite, to skip or to cancel:

The following file types can be copied into the client:

  • Analyses (dashboards, reports, .xview)
  • Menus
  • Slideshows
  • Templates
  • Bookmarks
  • PDF
  • Excel
  • CSV
  • XML
  • PNG
  • BMP
  • HtmlZip
  • Pptx

Note: These events are audit logged, making it possible to track when and by whom the operation was performed.

Note: Settings and configurations for e.g., User dimensions, Shared colors, Translations, etc., cannot be copied with this feature.

TARGIT's Command line tool can also perform copy/paste operations between a remote server and a local client. See this article: Command Line Tool: Targit.Commander.exe
