Applying templates to messages Follow

Once you've created a few templates in your Outpost account, you can start applying them to your messages. Here are some useful things to know about templates:

  • You can combine templates with your own writing - in other words, the template won't replace any text you've already written in a message.
  • You can apply more than one template to the same message.
  • When you apply a template, it will appear where your cursor is currently placed in the message.
  • Once you've applied a template to a message, you can edit that text as needed.
