Edit template - Automated actions

You can run many tasks automatically at various points in a project. This works for local projects as well as online ones.

Can't do this without templates: You can do this in projects created from project templates only. Set up a template first. Configure the automated actions. Then, create a new project from that project template.

For example, this is how memoQ can automatically pre-translate documents, and run statistics on them after they are imported.
