Thanks Ipstenu, I'll look into that plugin!
Here's some more information, in case you have other suggestions:
We run a grouping of over 200 individual WP installations and are moving towards a multisite setup to make the maintenance much easier. Every site in this grouping use the same set of plugins, and share the exact same configurations.
I was hoping I could easily configure the plugins in the network admin area as to avoid small setting changes being done on a site-by-site basis. One example is the custom field template plugin, we often add new options for our site users in there, and import a new xml file into each individual site. Would be much more convenient to do it at a high level and know that it'll be applied across the whole network.
If you have any others suggestions on stuff I should look into or read up on please let me know. If not, I'll wait a little bit before closing up this ticket.
