  4. Card template library

Page builders can save existing cards to the template library, for reuse across other pages in the app that share the same model.

Card templates enable you to:

  • Reuse cards. For example, you can use a grid card configured for a complex data table, to display a company's profit and loss account reports.
  • Select a preconfigured card that includes all settings and formatting. You can use the card without having to know the underlying model structure.
  • Set up templates to speed up your page building activities. For example, to create a KPI card or a chart template. Then you only need to change the line item that the template displays data for. This saves time when you do not create and configure a new card every time.
  • Create a set of cards, formatted for your brand or theme, so you can then create pages using pre-formatted cards. You then configure the view for the cards.

Card templates are displayed in the right-hand Cards panel, under Card template library. 

While you build your app, save a card to the template library if you think it will be useful in other parts of your app. You can then add a card from the template library.

You can also edit a card template and remove a card from the template library.


We may update our documentation occasionally, but will only do so in a way that does not negatively affect the features and functionality of the Anaplan service.
