Setting files as templates

In the Node Templates folder you can store documents that users can then use as document templates.
  1. In the Alfresco Repository open the Data Dictionary then Node Templates.
  2. Either drag and drop a content item that you want to use as a template onto the Node Templates drag and drop area, or click Upload and browse to and select the required file.

    Note: The standard Alfresco Create Content options are also available, so that you can create templates directly from Alfresco, in just the same way as a user would create new content.

    If you already have templated nodes set up, you can select to create content By Templated Node and create additional templates based on your existing templates.

  3. Click OK when the upload is complete.
The file is now available to your users as a template when they select to create content By Templated Node.
