How do I use templates on EX.CO?

Templates are a quick way to get started with interactive content and will help you create better content

In this template you'll learn how to

  • View templates
  • Use templates with content
  • Use templates without content

When you want to start a new item, you can either create from scratch - that is, a blank article where you choose each experience you want to add - or you can use one of our templates.

You can choose the template that makes sense for the content you're writing. If you need help finding the right template for you, there are categories you can explore on the left side toolbar.

Once you've chosen your template, you can either "preview" or "use" it. Previewing it will take you to the 'reader' view of the content, if this is your first time using this template, we recommend starting there.

You'll be able to see how the content looks, as well as read some extra information like KPIs each template can help you meet. 

Once you've interacted with the content, you can choose to look under the hood of the content itself by pressing "Use this template" - this will duplicate the item to your account, exactly how it is, so you can understand how to put together content with these experiences. 

If you want to create from there, you can just replace the content in the item.

If you click "Use without content", you'll open a version of that template with all of the experiences in order, but with no content inside them. This is a quicker way to get started. 

Don't forget to save your item once you've made some changes!
