Room templates serve as the basis for creating rooms when processes and projects exist that have a similar workflow or structure. For example, you can create tasks, files or posts within a room template and use these each time a similar project needs to be done.
How do I create a room template?
Use the "Create New" button to create a room template
New room templates can be created by clicking on the "Create New" button. This will open a drop down menu, which contains the option "New Room Template". Clicking on that will open a new pop up menu, in which you can define a name for the room template. In addition, you can define if the room template should be stored encrypted or unencrypted. This decision only applies for the room template itself. When creating a room from a room template, you can still decide if the actual room should be encrypted or not. Finally, the room template is created by clicking on "Create New Room Template".
Define a name and activate / deactivate the encryption
Hint: As the admin of an encrypted room template, keep the password (found in the "Room Settings") accessible at all times.
