Templates are brilliant for kick-starting your project. There are hundreds in our store for all types of use cases, and you can use them to get your projects closer to the finish line.
Once you've found a template you like, you can copy it to your Glide account to make it your own. Here's how:
- Select the Template you want to copy.
- Click on the 'Create this app' button.
Copying a Template
If you're not already signed in to your Glide account, you'll be prompted to sign in or create an account.
If you're new to Glide, the template will be copied to your default team folder. If you've already created multiple teams in Glide, you'll be prompted to select a team and the template will be copied here.
Choosing a team to add the Template
After copying a template, you'll want to customize its settings. You can get here by clicking the settings icon at the top of the Layout Editor
Settings in Glide
Here are some suggestions for your first changes:
- Under Appearance, you can customize the Navigation and Accent Color.
- Click Name & Icon to upload your own logo or icon.
- Click Privacy to change the Privacy Settings of your project.
- When you're ready to share your project, click the Publish button in the top right of Glide
- Customize your project's link, and invite users. Use the link or QR code to install your project and share it with the world!

If you've created a project and you want to turn it into a template, you'll find this option in the project's dropdown menu on the Dashboard. You can also click into your Templates subfolder and start a template from scratch there.
Creating a Template
In fact, any of your team members can make a template. Your collaborators can then create new projects from that template to move more quickly. If your team creates a lot of projects or if you want to standardize the projects your team creates — this can be very useful.

Submitting templates to the Template Store
The Glide Template Store is a great way to monetize and share your templates with the world.
To submit your project to the Template Store:
- Review the Template Store Guidelines to ensure your template is appropriate.
- Click Submit to store.
Complete the template submission form with all the necessary information.
When your template is approved or rejected, you'll receive an email notification. If your template is not approved, a reason is typically provided along with suggestions for resubmission.
If you'd like to charge users to download your template, you'll need to connect a Stripe account before submitting the form.
Sharing templates privately
If you prefer to share your templates with specific users and not publish them to the Template Store, you can send users a direct link to your template. When a user receives this link, they can preview and copy your template in the same manner as they would in the Template Store.
To share your templates privately:
Click the Share button at the top right of your template project.
If your template project isn't published, you'll be prompted to publish it.
Once published, copy the link and share it as you wish!
When someone opens your template link, they'll immediately be able to copy your template to their Glide account and use it. If you make changes to your template, users will need to download an updated version — changes you make will not affect users' previously copied templates.
