Product Update: Scale Content Creation with the Template Manager

by Dennis Looijenga

The Template Manager allows you to save and reuse content across your account. This makes it easier to scale content creation while staying on-brand.

This blog post was initially published in August 2019, when the Template Manager was officially launched. As we’ve enhanced it since then, we have updated this post to make sure it covers all functionality.

Foleon empowers business teams to create engaging and intelligent content experiences at scale. The template manager is the next step in this quest as we strive to simplify the creation of engaging content.

On top of scaling content creation, it gives you more tools for maintaining brand consistency. For example, designers can create branded templates, empowering other users to easily create stunning content that’s always on-brand.

Seeing as Foleon customers have already saved tens of thousands of templates, it’s safe to say that this is one of our most valuable features.

Peter Wenneker, Marketing & Communication Officer at ACTIAM, about the template manager:

What’s the template manager all about?

It empowers you to:

  • Scale content creation by saving content as templates
    Design your content, save complete pages, overlays, or individual blocks as templates, and easily reuse them across your account.
  • Keep your content on-brand
    Design branded templates to empower other users to create stunning content that’s perfectly on-brand.
  • Stay organized and in full control over user access
    Create a clear overview by organizing your templates in categories and determining availability with statuses.

Good to know: When you’ve saved a template, you can update it at any time or delete it to free up space for a new template. Updating or deleting a template will not affect content assets where this template was used.
