Instructions and tips for creating a new template
Templates are handy when you need individual products or entire projects frequently. Use our flexible templates to calculate the current price in just a few seconds without going through the configuration process again. Find out how you can create and modify these templates in our guide.
Saving products as a template
Templates are extremely useful, particularly for complex products that need to meet special technology requirements. Without a template, you would need to configure the products in the product configurator every time.
Once you have created your templates, you can inquire about projects or products quickly, edit them or initiate an order directly. Use the templates to calculate your individual price in a matter of seconds and instantly request the corresponding quotation with your next click. If something about the products changes, you can modify the templates at any time. The only requirement for benefiting from the full range of Online Support functions is that you register as a user.
