You can create an Office Template by making a Word document that contains the field values you want and uploading it from your desktop. For Word templates, you can download a reference guide with common artifacts and field values in your current Jama project that you can copy and paste into your template.

You can also edit details of an Office Template such as Report Name, Report Description, and Project/Organization availability. If you select Organization, the name of the report in the left menu will read "All projects" to indicate that this export is available for all projects. These detail field values may also be included in your export.
