Using Workspace Templates (Wall)

Support Note
Your experience can be streamlined to be consistent, whether using Bluescape on a large-format display, desktop, or web browser. The legacy Wall client is no longer available and will not be maintained. Learn how to Install the Bluescape Native Application on a Large Format Touch Display today and experience the upgrades first-hand.

If you already have Bluescape set up on your large format device, read Using Workspace Templates.

Bluescape templates provide a starting point for customizing common workflows. They comprise preset, structured workspace content that can be used and re-used dynamically. You can use these ready-made templates and customize them as needed by rearranging elements or adding assets.

You also can build custom templates in a workspace with shapes, notecards, text boxes, and other media to illustrate specific workflows. Templates can be made up of the following assets:

  • Shapes
  • Notecards
  • Textboxes
  • Documents
  • Images
  • Attached assets
  • Smart Grids
  • Videos

To access ready-made and custom templates on the Wall:

  1. Send a workspace in a Template-enabled Organization to the Wall.
    Note: To access any custom templates you have created, ensure the Login as me checkbox is selected when sending the workspace to the Wall. For more information, see Sending a Workspace to a Wall.
  2. Tap :add_content: (Add content) in the toolbar.
  3. Tap :template: (Templates).
  4. The Choose a template window opens, displaying Bluescape’s library of ready-made templates, plus any custom templates accessible from your login. You can use the search bar to find a specific template by name or the Filter and Sorting drop-down menus to narrow the list further.

  5. Tap the template you want to use.
  6. The Create Template Canvas pop-up opens, allowing you to create a canvas to contain the template. You can customize the canvas’s title and the border’s color.
    Note: You can optionally remove the title from your canvas for presentation purposes by clearing the default canvas name from edit mode.
  7. When you are finished, tap Place.
  8. An adjustable frame of the template canvas displays. You can resize the frame as needed.

  9. When you are finished, tap Place.
  10. The template displays in the canvas you created.

You can rearrange, edit, and add assets to customize your workflow. For an overview of what tools you can use to build templates, read Workspace Toolbar.
