Saving a new template
You can edit templates and save them for later use. To do so:
- After editing an existing template (Anti Harassment in our example), click the Reply Templates icon.
- Select Add as new template from the drop down
- In the dialogue that appears:
- Name your template
- New! If you are an Admin - You can check the 'Company - Wide' option to add this template for all users in your company who have access to RETAIN. They can later decide to select this template and use it when responding to employee feedback
- If you leave 'Company - Wide' unchecked, then the template will be available under 'My Templates'. These are specific to you and won't be accessible to anyone else.
- Now, click Save, and you’re good to go!
Note: If you are a Non Admin, you do not have the option to set a 'Company-Wide' Template. Any Template you save will be visible to you under 'My Templates.'
