How to create project templates
When you create a new project template, you can predefine reviewer groups and their settings. Reviewers, project collaborators, and files cannot be added to the template in advance.
Who can create or edit project templates
Admins and Managers
Admins can decide if these roles should be able to manage templates.
All users can always use templates to create projects. There is no permission to disable that (as long as the user has permission to create projects).

How to use project templates
All team members can use all of the team's project templates when creating a new project. To use the project template, follow these steps:
How to edit templates
All project templates will be collected in the Project Templates section below the project section in the left panel. Remember that only team members with the role Admin or Manager can edit the templates.
If you have the proper permissions, you can open the templates in the overview and edit the templates. You can edit the reviewer groups and respective settings when editing the templates.
Add reviewers to project templates
You can now add reviewers to project templates to ensure the same reviewers will always be looped into the right reviewer groups.
When creating a project template, click the Invite reviewers icon to add people to your reviewer groups. You'll also be able to choose which reviewers need to submit a review decision, just like when you invite people to active projects. When adding them to a project template, the reviewers will not be notified via email.
Then whenever you create a project from that template, all the reviewers will be invited automatically and the added reviewers will not be notified via email. So you can spend less time setting up your project and more time getting productive.
Add sections to project templates
You can now add sections to your project templates to ensure that projects follow the same workflow.
If you want to add a section to a project template, open the project template, click on Add section and enter a name for the section. All projects created with this template will now have the same sections.
