Hi there!

I have a notebook that I would like to use as a template for future toe books with the same format. How can I do that?

Thanks in advance

I also would like to be able to save a notebook as a template for future notebooks. In my case, I am looking at using this application for my profession as an attorney and would use the app in preparing for a trial. Thus, there would be a duplication of sections and pages within sections. For example, the repeat sections would be "Plaintiff's Case", "Defendants Case", "Check List", "Contacts", "Exhibits", "Closing"

Within each of those sections I would have preset pages (at least to start out).

I too would like to have the ability to create and manage templates. I do a lot of project management and some of the items I handle are notes. Have to setup each time my notes layout, would like to be able to have a folder called templates. Name each template as I want, select the template, copy and the go to my notebook section and paste the template in and start working.

i agree - i'm coming from CP Notebook, and being able to create my favourite style of notebook for class note-taking was a great feature. i didn't have to recreate sections every term for Administrative, Lectures, Readings, etc.

Hi Elisabeth,

Thanks for reaching out!

And thank you for describing your workflow with the page templates.
I added your vote for this feature: we'll discuss it with the team and maybe will be able to plan it for one of the next releases.

I also like these suggestions of a notebook template. But to do this you need to first able to create page templates which sorely missing from Outline. My vote is for both page and notebooks templates.

I agree templates is a needed feature. I use OneNote on a surface with notebook templates and would like to migrate to iOS. This is critical for field use.
