    At bare minimum it should remember your last selection for which sections to push - so the items that should apply become part of the template. I can barely use the template feature at all because re-pushing the massive number of default settings can really ***** things up if anyone had ever changed something from defaults. I can't ever expect a tech to remember which 9 sections have hosts, rules, service groups, etc that should apply for a template (say, allowing a local application service to bypass web filter/ips), and since you can't remove any sections that don't apply (the defaults MUST be present), it is tedious to track down which are the relevant settings you're trying to apply. If we could see the template as ONLY the changes that were made from the defaults and not everything, and therefore only apply the sections that are present in the template, it would be much more intuitive and useful.

    +1 on multiple WAN option.
    I got tired of sending out new VPN profiles whenever primary WAN went down, so I sorta half-fixed that by setting a Dynamic DNS entry for the primary WAN port and using the Sophos Connect Admin utility, changed the target host in the .tgb file to the Dynamic DNS name (we configured the Sophos '.myfirewall.co' DDNS service). On WAN failover, I still have to log into the firewall and manually change WAN port in Sophos Connect config, then in Dynamic DNS and wait for it to update/expire/propagate, but you don't need 2 profiles or any other changes on the clients.
