Course templates provide users with the ability to create, edit, and manage their own course templates that can also be used when creating Evolve courses, optimizing your course creation workflow.

With course templates, you can either create a course template from scratch using those provided with Evolve or turn an existing or newly created course into a course template.

In this article, we’ll walk you through creating, editing, and managing course templates within Evolve.

Manage course templates

Access templates by navigating to the Templates menu from the Dashboard. This menu provides you with the ability to do the following:

  • Create a course from a template

  • Preview a template

  • View the settings of a template

  • Pin a template

Note: When a course is created from a template, it will include all of the settings (i.e. extensions, theme, and logic triggers) of the original course the template was created from. Additionally, pinning a template will make it accessible in the Create Course > Course Template menu. Pinned templates are user specific and does not apply across accounts.

Template settings

Access template details by clicking Details in the View Actions menu of the template after it has been created. The details menu allows you to:

  • Edit the template title

  • Edit the template description

  • Apply tags

Note: To edit a template, create a course from the template you’d like to change. Once the new course has been created, create a new template from the updated course and delete the old template.
