Using Your Own Templates

If you have created your own Template Apps you'll see them listed below MyPhotoApp Quick Start templates in the Create App menu. This makes it easier than ever to save your favourite Apps to use again and again.

To save an App as a template simple select the App in the app navigator and click Save As Template, type a name for your Template in the New Template box and click Save As New Template.  The template name can be identical to the original App.  Your new template will be at the top of the app navigator. It's also a good idea to create a new folder to store all your templates in as this helps to organise the App navigator.

Using A Shared Template 

If you have the name of a Shared Template or wish to use an App you have already created in a different brand you can enter the name of the App in the format brand.appname and it will be used as the template for your new App.

Find More Templates

Check out the Template Tab in the builder to browse the Template bazaar for more great templates from the MPA team and members to get you started.

NOTE: from time to time some of the Quick Start Templates may be changed to highlight new features and uses but the Default Template will always be included.  Don't worry if you miss your favorite template you can find any that have been swapped out on the Template or Master Class Tabs.
