How to Edit Templates

Templates are the basis of all of your checklists in Process Street, so it’s natural that at some point you’re going to want to edit them. Perhaps the time has come to update a template or you’re looking to change a pre-made template you’ve imported; either way, it’s time to edit.

There are two ways access template edit mode:

Both of these methods utilize the “Edit Template” option in the template’s menu, so the quickest method depends on if you’re currently viewing your dashboard or you’ve already opened the template.

Users: In order to edit templates, you must be an Administrator or a Member who has been given ‘can edit’ access by your Administrator.

Editing a template

Start from your template dashboard and search for your template there, or inside a folder.

Click the three dots next to the template’s name to open the right-hand menu. Select “Edit Template” to open the template editor.

You can also click the template’s name to open it in template view mode, after which you can select “Edit Template” from the right-hand menu.

If you have chosen a premade template from the template gallery, as soon as you select the template it opens up in template view mode, ready to edit or to run checklists from.

Unsaved template changes

If you navigate away from your template without saving all your changes, your changes will not push through to template view mode, or any active checklists.

When you return to the template, you will see a pop-up message at the top of your screen, and an orange/yellow warning icon next to the “Edit Template” button, as shown below.

Edit the template and then save (or discard) your changes.
