Creating and Publishing a Section Template

Section templates alllow you to create re-usable canvas sections for your Ruum account. These can then be added to existing ruums at any time.


Section templates can be created in two ways: Either as a new template or by turning an existing section on your canvas into a template.

New Section Template

To create a new section template, click Templates on the side panel, select Section Templates, and then either click + New or Create New Template:

Enter a section 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.

Turning an Existing Section into a Section Template

You can also turn an existing canvas section into a section template by clicking Options - Create Template:

Publishing a Template

Once you're happy with the section 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 with it.

To do this, click Publish:

By publishing this section 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 sections from it.
