A Data Template is a standardized mapping that provides a consistent, repeatable view of data by binding together different definition calculations. Multiple templates can be created for the same data source to provide accurate and consistent data for different industry groups. For example, a Metals and Mining group may have a different data template to that of the Telecommunications group.
The Data Hub is pre-loaded with a Default template which is shared by everyone in your organization. Any changes made to definitions in this template will be applied to all users in your company. Switch templates in Data Hub > Definitions using the drop down menu above the plottable items table.
Create a new template by clicking +Template in the drop down menu. Give the template a name and select an existing template to copy. This will form the basis of a new template. At the moment, new templates cannot be started from scratch, you can only copy over and the update from existing templates.
