Templates solve several problems for teams making 3D presentations by providing consistency, saving time, and ensuring that the right message is conveyed.
The main benefits of using Jig 3D presentation templates in your team include:
- Streamlining processes: No need to start from a blank presentation, saving your team valuable time.
- Pre-approved content: No need to get legal or design approval on written copy or visual assets.
- Maintaining branding: Uniform look across all presentations.
- Facilitating collaboration: Easy to share and modify by different team members.
How to create a team template
- Open your 3D presentation you have created in JigSpace
- Go to Jig information in the app
- Scroll to ‘Allow others to copy this Jig’
- Select ‘Team only’ or ‘Anyone can copy’, then Save
- Share with your team
There are two types of Jig templates you can create, with different permissions and benefits.
This restricts copying your Jig to only your signed in and licensed team members. This is ideal for restricting proprietary content to your immediate team and for specific business-to-business use cases like sales proposals or marketing collateral.
Team only templates are available on the Organization and Enterprise plans.
Anyone can copy
This allows anyone you share your Jig with, whether they’re in your team or via public sharing links, to make a copy of it. This could be used as part of B2C marketing or education content, allowing for wide-spread remixing or re-use of your content.
Note, allowing others to copy with this setting means they will be able to view your content inside JigSpace’s editing environment when they make a copy.
Using a template
To use a team template, a user need to:
- Open the JigSpace app
- Go to Team Jigs
- Click on a template and ‘Save a copy’
- Give the Jig a name
- It will then be added to their My Jig section in the Create section of the app
- Click on the Jig and select ‘Edit Jig’ to start using the template
We recommend following these guidelines when making templates.
Use categories to organize templates
Create a dedicated ‘Templates’ category in your Team Jigs and add your template Jigs to it.
You can add this category to your presentations inside your Jig information.
Use custom thumbnails
Make your templates stand out by adding a custom thumbnail to them.
You can upload your own images or use the JigSpace thumbnail creator.
Using pre-approved content is a great way to streamline teams and unblock technical approvers.
If you are using pre-approved 3D, visual content, or written copy from legal, regulatory, design, or technical teams, make it clear in the presentation what a user of the template can edit or add, and what they need to leave untouched. You can do this on the first step of the template, or by adding placeholder objects or text.
Seek feedback from users
Once your template is in use, you should seek regular feedback from your teammates to understand where you can improve the design, identify missing elements, and measure the success of the template. Updating a template is as simple as editing the Jig and saving it.
