Set Automatically map User File to Project File. This enables the Create Item dialog box to populate the project filename based on the user filename.

To automatically overwrite files during get or check out operations:

Set Automatically Overwrite Files. This means that files that do not have the read-only permissions will be overwritten by the get and check out operations. If this option is not set, existing writable files cannot be overwritten. You can however, still override this in the Check Out and Get Item dialog boxes.

NOTE  If a file has read-only permissions, it will always be overwritten regardless of this setting.

To have any new requests that you create automatically related to the current project:

Set New requests to be addressed in current project. If this option is not set, new requests will not be related to any project/stream by default.
