How to create murals from templates

Scale your design practice consistently with templates.

 

When you’ve designed a series of activities you want to repeat again and again, you can publish that mural as a template. A template acts as a master copy. Anyone who creates a mural from that template will begin with the exact same content. Anyone in your team can create murals from templates. 

 

Templates appear in the ‘TEMPLATES’ options from the workspace overview page. It's just below ‘ALL MURALS' in the upper left. 

 

If you want to create a mural from a template, you have two options

  1. Create a new mural normally and pick a template from one of the template categories in the drop-down menu...

 

 

OR

  1. Enter the ‘TEMPLATES’ dashboard and select “Create mural from template” from the dropdown menu in top right of the thumbnail of the template you’d like to use.

HOW TO EDIT TEMPLATES

If you want to customize a template, you can do so after creating a mural from the template.

 

Here's how:

  1. When you are inside the mural, right click on the elements that you want to edit
  2. Choose 'unlock' in the dropdown, and the element will be available to edit.
  3. Once you are happy with your changes you can lock down the elements to the background again by right click on them and select 'lock' in the dropdown.

 


With templates, your whole team will be able to complete the same activities, promoting a structured and consistent process. Feel confident that everyone is starting from the same point.
