Creating and managing Qwilr templates
Templates are great time savers for your team to create consistent content efficiently. You can organise, edit and manage them in your Templates Dashboard if you're an admin. And your team can create pages from them once they're ready!
Note: For more detailed instructions on templates for CRMs like HubSpot or Salesforce, you can use these instructions.

By clicking on the three vertical dots to the right of each template title, you can choose to clone, edit, archive, or delete any of your existing templates. Note: Blueprint templates cannot be deleted if pages have been created from them.
You can also filter your templates by Accept/Quote Block, CRM connected, or People (the person that created the template).
How do I edit Templates?

Click the options menu to the right of the template title and select edit
Cloning a Template
Sometimes it's helpful to use one template as a quick starting point for another one. That's where cloning comes in handy!
To clone an existing template, head into your template library either by navigating to Library and then Templates.
Click the options menu to the right of the template title and select clone
The clone will appear. Click the Edit button to change its title and any other content.
Once you've converted a Qwilr Page to a template, it leaves your dashboard. You can now use it to create pages.
To create a page from your template, click the Create New button on the pages dashboard. Then choose From Template..
Locate your template, and then click on it to open it in the preview window.
From there, click the Create Page button.
Changing a Template back to a page
To change a template back to a page, you can follow our instructions above for Using Templates to create a page from your template. Once you have created a page from your template, you can Delete your Template via the Template Dashboard and your page will remain.
Note: If you're on our Enterprise plan, you can also set automatic link expiry on your templates. That way, every page created from the template will have the same expiry setting.
How about adding some tokens to your template, so you can easily personalize the pages you create?
