How to create story templates

Use the snippets and placeholder features together to create templates for any occasion

Snippets are an excellent way to create recyclable templates that allow you to easily and quickly structure your most commonly-used story elements.

Here's an example of a press release template using placeholder snippets to keep things clear and organized:

This means you no longer need to start from scratch each time you want to write a press release, create an event announcement, write a blog post, and so much more. The possibilities are endless.

So, how do you make this template?

Step 1: Create a snippet

Click the green + menu button, choose "Snippets" and "Create snippet."

Step 2: Add a snippet title

Something like "Blog Post Template" or "Product Launch Template" is perfect for keeping things organized and easy to find.

Step 3: Add all of your staged content

Use snippets for images and attachments, text blocks with dummy content, merge tags for publication dates, contact cards, and anything else you'll perennially use for that type of story.

And voila!

You've created an easily reusable template that can easily be edited and customized.
