Templates provide a starting point for customizing common workflows in a workspace. You can take advantage of ready-made templates provided by Bluescape, and rearrange or add assets as needed. They are made up of preset, structured workspace content that can be used and re-used dynamically. Templates are contained in canvases for better organization and find-ability.

You can find explanations for all templates provided by Bluescape in the Templates category. You also can build your own custom templates in a workspace with shapes, notecards, text boxes, and other media to illustrate specific workflows.
