How do I bring forward the same monitors from 2014 to 2015

This is how I do at as I know of no other way.  I use RegEdit to export the current set of monitors, edit the resulting .reg file to change the module year, and then run the edited .reg file to import the monitors for the new year.

For example, to copy your monitors for T1 2014 to T1 2015, run RegEdit and locate the following entry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GreenPoint\ProFile\2014 T1\Monitor

Right-click on this entry and choose Export from the menu.

Save the exported .reg file to a convenient location and give it a meaningful name such T1-2014.reg.

Close RegEdit.

Edit the exported .reg file using Notepad.

Use Notepad’s Find & Replace feature to Replace All instances of \2014 T1\ with \2015 T1\.

Use Notepad’s File > Save As command to save the edited file to a new file, such as T1-2015.reg.

Execute the new file T1-2015.reg and your monitors from T1 2014 will now be available in T1 2015 the next time that you open ProFile.

Repeat the above for any other year & module combinations.

These .reg files can also be executed on other computers to import your monitors to their registry.  This is how I distribute our firm’s standard set of monitors to all staff.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
