Last year's templates can be transferred to this year's site. If you use the same look and feel each year, this is for you!
You won't believe how easy this is...
In last year's site, any page you saved as a CURRENT template in My Templates will be transferred. That's it - you don't have to do anything more. When you log into your site this year, you'll find those templates in My [job year] Templates. Your Job Year will vary, but it will always be the year prior.
Now...here's the catch. Only the templates in 'My Templates' transfer. So that means if you used a template from a previous year on your page, but didn't Save As Template again, that template won't transfer. Only the ones in My Templates will.
The fix is simple though...log into your previous year's site, go to that page you really like, and Save As Template.
