Document Builder: Templates

Document Builder Templates are the containers for fields, blocks, or sections that have been grouped together and used to generate documents without any additional configuration. Templates can be created from scratch using any available sections, or copied from any available global template. For more information on creating documents, see Document Builder. Document Builder is only available to users who have also signed up for Appraisal Builder Pro (ABP).
