The path to the root folder of the project templates which defines the project configuration.
For distributed scenarios, it might make sense to place the templates somewhere outside the company network on a location which every project member can reach. To accommodate for such situations, Aligned Elements supports storing templates on an Azure File Storage in the Cloud.
To designate a location in an Azure File Storage, you need to supply two pieces of information:
1) The path to the templates on the form “\”
2) The Storage Connection String
The prefix part of the URL to the project.
The smtp server address (e.g. smtp.gmail.com)
An email address that has an account on the server
The password valid for the User above.
The name you want to appear as sender in the email.
The port used (e.g. 465 for SSL).
Select if SSL shall be used.
ECertificate - For Digital Signatures. User can only sign if a valid Electronic Certificate has been associated with the User (see User Management).
NoCertificate - No Electronic Certificate is required and thus an Electronic Signature (but no Digital Signature) is applied.

Optionally include the Aligned Elements File Version in the Document Info.
For NoCertificate-Mode, optionally request and include Location information in signature stamp.
For NoCertificate-Mode, optionally include Reason in each signature stamp.
For NoCertificate-Mode, optionally request and include Comment information in signature stamp.

Defines the DHF columns displayed in the Word Output.
In order to compare the status of a concrete deliverable and the status that the QMS specifies for a certain Project Phase (i.e. DHF Index), Aligned Elements needs information about project phases (or milestones).
Add the names of the Project Phases according to your QMS and arrange the phases in sequence order. Select the name of the current Project Phase.
The Project Settings can be exported into an xml file and later imported into a different project. This is especially handy when distributing company-wide SMTP Settings and Signature Preferences.
In Project Settings, click Export to export the current project settings to an xml file.
When importing the exported Project Settings xml file in a different project, the following parameters are ignored:
Project Creation Date
Current Project Phase
