Make Your Own Templates On Sketchnote!

January 23, 2023

We've got an amazing couple of updates for you that let you—the user—truly harness the power of Sketchnote's customization. This week, we've worked on opening up the Template Store for your custom templates and putting control of who views your public files in your hands. Let's tell you all about it!

Add your own custom templates to your organization

We know that when it comes to templates, there's no one-size-fits-all. While we design templates for work processes to accommodate all sorts of startups and departments, we're sure you have your own templatized workflows you're most comfortable with.

And so, presenting a way to save your own templates, that can be used by you and your team an unlimited number of times. After designing any file, click on file options on the top right of the screen and choose "Save as template". Add some details about your template, give it a spiffy cover image, and boom! You have a template!

You can now head to Explore templates on your sidebar, and find these under your organization name. Your templates can be used by anyone in your organization at any time at all. You can save multiple views here too. Which means, your template for standup meetings that you use every week can have a Kanban board with each teammate's name, a Gantt chart, a calendar view and even a document and whiteboard to brainstorm. You're the boss!

Password protection for public files is here

The next amazing update this week is that you can now enable password protection on your files you share publicly. Many times, you may need outside stakeholders to view sensitive data you don't want falling into the wrong hands. Say, you want to send a group of your investors your product updates for the month. You enable the public link and add a password to it, which you share with the link, and keep your file away from prying eyes!
