To use a shared template, you must be signed in to your ClickUp account on a web browser and paste the link into a new tab.

The Use a template modal opens in the new tab with options for using the shared template.

  1. From the Workspace dropdown, select a Workspace.

    • You can keep the same name or type a new one.

  2. Select Also save a copy of this template if you want to save it in your Template Center library. Otherwise, the template will just be applied to the location you choose.

    • The template is shared with all of your Workspace members by default. You can select to keep the template only for your use, to share it with admins only, or select specific people from your Workspace.

  3. Click Use template.

  4. The template is now applied to the Workspace you selected!

Changes to this template are only made in your Workspace and don't affect any other version of the template.
