What are Project Kits?
A project kit contains a preset collection of templates that users can add as a starting point when creating their own projects.
Why are Project Kits useful?
When a user creates a new project, the project is empty until templates are added via the Content Automation Template Library. However, it can sometimes be difficult for authors to know which templates they should add or where they belong in the Template Library.
The above video shows how users add documents to empty projects.
This is where Project Kits come in. Admins can create kits for their users by choosing a collection of documents that will automatically appear inside the project kit. For example, if an administrator creates a Social Media kit for their authors, the project may contain social- media related templates such as Facebook and Instagram tiles. This enables users to start creating documents sooner.
The above video shows how project kits already contain documents when added.
