Creating a new template and modifying existing templates

From Scratch

When starting from scratch, you will start with a blank template.
This is the quickest way to get started with a new template, but you will need to add all the components and logic to the template yourself.

Creating from scratch

  • Template Name
    • Enter the name of your new template
  • Template Description (Optional)
    • Enter a description of your new template
  • Parent Template
