Creating and Publishing a Ruum Template

Ruum templates are a preset layout for your projects, allowing you to efficiently create new ruums without replicating previous work or configurations.

Creating a Draft Template

To create a draft ruum template, click on Templates on the side panel and then select either + New or Create New Template

Enter a Template Name, add a Description, and if necessary, add this template to an existing Workspace:

The draft template is now displayed. However, this effectively creates a generic template, one without any additional content or configuration. As such, we recommend changing the template structure, adding content, and taking advantage of Ruum's great features.

For more information about editing your canvas, view our Canvas and Content category.

Cover Color and Cover Icon

In addition to standard ruum features, you can also edit the template's cover color and cover icon. These allow you to visually identify the template within your template library.

To edit the template cover color and cover icon, click the Template Settings icon:

An example of how the template is then displayed in the library:

Publishing a Template

Once you're happy with the template content, you can then publish this to your ruum account and / or workspace. This makes the template available within your library, allowing you (and others who have access to the template) to create ruums from it.

To do this, click Publish:

By publishing this template, you will share it with all team members of the selected workspace. The workspace members will not be able to change the template, but only create new ruums.
