How to: Save as a Template & Create an Experience from a Template

Templates

Templates are exact copies of experiences that they have originated from, they will use the same styling, theme, form, content, and layout, but here are some key differentiation points:

  • Templates cannot be published, they only work as a starting point for a new experience.
  • Templates can only be edited or deleted by Admin users. 
  • Templates can be used by Publishers and Creators as a starting point to create experiences though.
  • Templates can be found under the "Templates" filter in Experiences List or under "Account Templates" in the Experience Library. 

Save As Template (Admin)

If you are an Account Admin, you will see a new functionality in your account that will enable you to Save an Experience as a Template. To do so, simply: 

  • Go to the Experiences List Screen 
  • Select your favorite experience
  • Navigate to the More actions menu and select "Save as Template" 
  • This will open up a dialog window where you can fill out essential details such as: 
    • Name (use a descriptive name that will help your teammates understand what the template is for) 
    • Description (short overview why and when to use it) 
    • Thumbnail image (it will work as a visual cue to help your teammates select the relevant template)
  • Once done with this step, click on "Save" 
  • This will create a Template that only Admin users can edit.
