Allow a ClearQuest administrator to turn off Template functionality

A template can used by ClearQuest (9.0.1.4) users to save commonly entered data and then import that data when creating a new record of the same type, which saves them time.

Allow a CQ administrator to turn off templates for a specified record type, or possibly prevent certain fields from being added to the template.

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.

    Often a child record is specific to the parent it is linked to. If that child record gets inadvertantly linked to other parent records, there can be confusion and rework. All CQ administrators would benefit from this.

    Thanks for the enhancement request. We need more information. What's the business impact? How many users would benefit?
