How do I turn a wiki page into a template?

We have a wiki site with project-level documentation. We'd like to take a current page and turn it into a template for use across projects. Is there a way to do that or do we need to copy/paste the content into a template?

Hi @n0173439 ! Currently the best way to do this is to just copy the contents on your source page and then go to Site Settings and create a custom global template. If you do not need the template for ALL spaces, you can create the custom template at your space level. You will need to be an admin of the space or site to do one or the other. 

https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/administer-global-templates/

We have noted that our community would like an easier way to turn a page into a template for both a specific space or globally.

- How often do you turn existing pages into templates vs. create templates from scratch? 

Thanks! 

Hi Sam, thanks for the guidance. We will use this workaround.

It's not that often that we would need to do this, but the impact is fairly time-consuming. We create new templates a few times per year within our sites. The specific page that we'll copy into a template has a bunch of separate sections and formatted tables, so that's why we were looking for a workaround. No worries that there isn't one currently, but I'd love to see that in a future update!

Thanks!

OOTB you would use copy/paste. I am unaware of any add-on that would change that requirement.

Thanks Jack
