Use templates to create many similar elements in very short time.

There are two ways to create a template

  • create a template from scratch - see tutorial.
  • create a template from an existing definition (e.g. alarm, events, ...).

This tutorial demonstrates how to create a template from an existing alarm.

Create the template from an existing element

  1. Select an existing alarm element. This can be done in the Alarms app or in the Explorer app.
  2. Click the Create template button  from the toolbar:

  3. Provide a name for the new template and click Save.

  4. Now, the template is available in the Templates app.
  5. In this tutorial, we will use the variable RoomNumber to parameterize the alarm. Insert the variable in the Name, surrounded by curly brackets
  6. After referencing the variable for the first time, it will be shown in the Variables window:

  7. To insert the variable on further locations, put the text cursor to the respective position and click the variable in the Variables window.

  8. Save the template.

Now the template is ready to use and can be applied in the Alarms or Explorer app.
