What are templates for?

Templates are the foundation of your use of Tomorro. Well-configured templates ensure optimal operation and a significant gain in efficiency for you and your teams.

Templates are the types/categories of documents & contracts that you will archive, generate, sign, and track in Tomorro.

Thus, you could have two types of templates:

  • those for which you have your own templates according to your core business: HR contracts, NDAs, Customer contracts, Partnership contracts, SLAs, etc ...

  • those for which you do not have a template, but which are types of documents/contracts that you still want to manage and archive in Tomorro: supplier contracts, for example, for which it is often the supplier's template but it's essential to be able to archive and track them in Tomorro to have reminders for tacit renewals, for example.

🛠 How to do it?

To get started, click on "Templates" from the left menu as shown in the image below :

Then click on "New template" at the top right of the page to create a new template.

The options

Here you are in the template interface and there are several possibilities depending on what you want to do:

  • Start from your own template (in .docx format) and then set it up in Tomorro

  • Start without a document to :

    • Manage contracts for which you do not have a document

    • Create a template starting from a blank page in Tomorro

  • Use a free community template

👉 Click on any of the options to learn how to set them up very easily.

Publish the template

Whatever option you choose and once you have set up your template, with a document or without any document, in order for it to be usable by you or members of your organization to create projects, it is necessary to click on "Publish template", at the top right of the page ✅

Note that all changes are automatically saved.

💡 If you left the page and forgot to publish your template or don't want to publish your template right away, you'll find it in the "Drafts" section:

Note that templates that have a draft status cannot be used for a project. Only published templates can be used by you and all members of your organization when creating a new project.
