Template Designer

A template is the starting point for all forms created in Maestro. Templates allow users to re-use styling and common form elements (for example, header, navigation, footer), without having to rebuild them in every form.

Templates are created and managed by Template Designers. A Template Designer needs to have strong experience with CSS as this is one of the main technologies they use to create and manage shared styles in the template. Template Designers often rely upon a business's corporate style guide as they create templates that implements the business's brand which can be applied to all of the company's forms to promote a consistent look and feel.

Template Designers are responsible for defining and managing Maestro assets and resources that implement and enforce a business's brand. This includes:

  • Styles, including styling of the form’s chrome (form areas such as the navigator, footers, and specific components);
  • Content on modal pages and dialogs that are shared across forms;
  • Creating shared form options to make it easier for Form Builders to configure forms;
  • The management of published templates and various libraries.

A Template Designer does not focus on the form's content (this is the role of the Form Builder), nor are they concerned with the user’s journey. Note, however, that content may be added to a template. Such content is considered template content and is used across most, if not all, forms based on the template. Template content may include the content within modal pages or dialogs, such as the submission confirmation modal page.
