Create Template in SmartClient for Salesforce

A Template is a collection of objects and their associated fields. A Template is created so it can be reused for recurring operations such as downloading filtered business objects with specific information. Example: Downloading Accounts of a specific location, removing obsolete Contacts, purging dated cases etc.

To create a template, click the ‘plus’ icon as shown in the image.

The Template loads the objects and the associated fields.

You can also search the templates that have already been created.

To create a template, first select the Object and click Select Fields.

Note: Parent and Child Objects are also supported.

Once you select the Objects, the list of Fields are displayed.

Click on the Field name to select the record. To deselect the Field, click the cross mark.


After selecting the Object and the Fields, provide a name to the Template and click Save or Save & Load.
