The main objective for Vizlib Templates is to help generate a consistent, standardized look for Qlik Sense data visualisations which can be aligned with your company design and branding system. You can create and share templates with your entire organisation, speeding up development and maintaining visual standards across your Qlik Sense apps.
Working with Vizlib Templates
All of your template information and settings are held in the Templates section of the Vizlib User Portal (Figure 1). The Explore pages contain any available Vizlib templates and Demo apps, and in Your templates, you can view the Company templates you've created for your organization and a list of the Users who can work with Vizlib Templates.

Creating and Saving Templates
You can create templates in the Qlik Sense hub when you're working with extensions, and make changes as you go along. Once you've got the look and feel you want, you can save the template and publish it for other users to apply. You can find a full guide on creating and saving templates in our article here.
Vizlib Templates have two distinct states - Published and Unpublished.
You can find out more about managing templates in our article here.

Templates in Offline Installations
If you're working with Vizlib extensions as part of an Offline installation (where the Qlik Sense Enterprise Server has no internet connection), working with templates is still possible. However, there are some other steps you'll need to follow.
- Log into the Vizlib User Portal, click on your name in the top right of the screen, then select Account management (Figure 1).
- Select Inject templates in offline extensions and you'll be able to download any published templates as part of the offline extension bundle.

Note on Creating Templates: Offline users will still need to use an Online version of the extension they're working with to create the template and publish it using a Qlik Sense development server which has internet access. It is not possible to publish templates via Qlik Sense desktop.
