What are Templates?
A template is a pre-designed format or layout that can be used as a starting point for creating a document, webpage, or other types of content. Templates often include placeholders for specific information, such as text, images, or data. They can be customized to fit the needs of the user. In the context of digital business cards, a template may include a card's layout, design, and branding elements, as well as placeholders for contact information and other details specific to the individual team member. Templates can save time and ensure consistency in the appearance of your cards.
In the Beta Program, template control is limited to styles and media, but we have plans to continue expanding the Template Engine until you have ultimate control over every aspect. Reach out to us if you'd like to request a new customization feature, we love product feedback!
