Creating and Managing Templates

What is a template

A template is a piece of text that can be inserted into any website input field (for example, text area and text inputs) with Briskine.

What are templates good for?

Templates are used to avoid writing the same text over and over again. A template can be any repetitive text that you frequently write, regardless of text length.

Here are a few examples of templates:
