Ben, I think you have to go to the database or source.
-- List all workstation setting types.
SELECT * FROM config.workstation_setting_type ORDER BY NAME;
Look at the 950.data.seed-values.sql file (huge file though). Search for
config.workstation_setting_type starting around line 18475.
Once you know the name, I believe you would create an "Org Unit Setting
Type" with the same name. Then you can set values for it via the library

>> Morgan, thank you for this info. I totally missed the connection to

>> think I'm the only one. When Bill posted his message about the server side
>> processed print templates in April 2019
>> I commented (along with a few other people) that it would be great to have
>> a way to centrally manage print templates, not realizing that had been
>> added 8 months earlier.
>> I started a bug report with notes on documenting this behavior in the
>> print templates section.

>>> Hi Josh,
>>> Since moving to 3.2 where workstation settings were moved to the server,
>>> we've been making use of org unit settings to set default print templates.
>>> Any workstation setting can be turned into an org unit setting as Bill
>>> Erickson described here:
>>> We have set a number of default print templates at the consortium org
>>> unit level as consortium defaults, and upon request of a library, have
>>> copied print templates configured on a given workstation into org unit
>>> settings for that library so they don't need to be set on each workstation.
>>> We've left the workstation setting types so that individual workstations
>>> can override the org unit settings when necessary.
>>> This has been pretty successful, eliminating the need for library staff
>>> to move them from workstation to workstation on a flash drive.
>>> We've done this for many column settings as well.
>>> Hope this is helpful.
