Saving a Configuration onto PC
The IP Office system configuration settings shown within Manager can be saved as a .cfg file on the Manager PC. These files can be used as backups or sent to other persons to aid problem diagnostics. Note however that an offline configuration file does not include the Audit Trail records for the IP Office system.
Automatically Saving Sent Configurations
By default, Manager creates a file copy of the configuration before it is sent to the IP Office. This copy is stored in Manager's Working Directory using the IP Office's system name and .cfg. This behavior is controlled by the Save configuration file before send setting (File | Preferences | Edit | Preferences).

Select File | Save Configuration as from the menu bar.
Saving a Configuration opened on the PC
- Click in the main toolbar or select File | Save Configuration from the menu bar.
Copying and Pasting
IP Office Manager supports the normal Windows methods of cutting, copying, pasting and deleting entries and settings. These can be accessed through the Edit menu in the menu bar or using the standard Windows keyboard shortcuts for those actions. They can also be accessed by selecting an entry or text field and then right-clicking.
Copy and paste can be used with the navigation and group panes to create a new entry with the same settings as the original. The copy will be renamed as Copy of ... to avoid conflicting with the original.
When using copy and paste between individual settings fields, whether on the same entry or a different entry, care should be taken to ensure that the fields use the same type of data. Similarly copying an entry in the navigation or group pane and then pasting it into the details pane will prompt Manager to paste the copied entries data into the first field of the current entry in the details pane. As a general rule, cut and paste actions should be used with the same pane and within similar entry types.
For users and user rights, a number of controls have been provided to copy settings between a user and a user right or vice versa. See User Rights Overview in the Configuration Settings section.
