Template designates another asset as a starting point for the current asset. The template acts as a fallback if blocks or slots in the asset are not found in their corresponding attribute. For example, if the asset contains a slots placeholder but no slots attribute, and that asset has a template, the given slot in template.slots will be used, if found. Templates can also provide locking mechanism to prevent assets from using them as templates to modify specific sections of content.

You can only use a template within the html view inside a top level attribute views object.views.html.template.

Add a template to the asset as an object, under the template attribute. For example, this asset uses a template for the html view, with some changes to the content slots.

The template is pulled from an existing template asset and therefore has an ID attribute. When blocks are imported as existing blocks or when they are saved separately, they will also have an ID attribute, like block1 in this example.
