How to Create a Template from your Exploration

- Current Page
- Specify the page numbers to be included in the Template. (Press Shift key to select range of pages). You can include only continuous pages.
- Discovery On: Each Exploration has an execution graph which is a series of operations that generate a series of datasets. The datasets from where the execution graph starts are called root datasets. You can choose any one of the root datasets for Discovery On field.
How is it useful: After creating a Template with this setting, whenever an operation generates the same type of data, Klera will discover this Template as a result, in the View Panel. You can run this Template from the View Panel. Refer here to learn more about how to run a Template.
