What are these templates for?

Screendoor is all about saving you time, so you and your collaborators can focus on managing your submissions.

The project template is one of many Screendoor features that serve this greater goal. We think you’ll find our drag-and-drop form builder and project wizard easy to use, but you shouldn’t have to build a project from scratch if you’ve created a similar one before. When you create a new project from a template, you can reuse configuration settings from an existing or archived project. And for the settings and form components you don’t want to reuse, you can delete or revise them in the project wizard as you see fit.

Contribute a template

Do you have a template that others would find useful? If so, we encourage you to share it in this very repo.

First, export your template by navigating to your list of project templates. Next, click the “Export” link next to the name of template you’d like to share:


This downloads the template as a YAML file.

Fork this repo and clone it to your computer. Then, add and commit your template to your local repo and push it to your forked repo on Github. Finally, submit a pull request! Once we confirm that the template can be imported correctly into Screendoor, we'll include it here.

Does the paragraph above make little to no sense? Does your ambition to share a template remain undeterred? If your answer to both is "Yes," we recommend reading this handy guide to contributing on Github.
