Setting Up a Template is More Art than Science
In the lessons that follow, you will learn some best practices and strategies to help you successfully set up templates. One thing to keep in mind is that setting up a template is more art than science.
You should be flexible in the way you approach setting up templates. If you're too mechanical, you may miss the nuances of the document and the template may not be as complete or effective as it could be. Often times, there may be some trial and error before you get it right.
Relationship Between the Template Builder and the Platform
The Template Builder and the Platform are inherently connected because setting up templates in the Template Builder is how the "Journey" that will be followed to generate documents from the template through the Platform is built.
