When creating a new Awesome Table view, it can be useful to start from an already existing template. In awesome-table.com, more than 20 templates are available for you to copy (tables, card views, maps...).
In Awesome Table's website, you'll see a template gallery at the top of the homepage. Click on the arrows to expend it and display all available templates. Once you've selected a template, click on it and you'll be redirected to the template page. Once there, click on "Use Template" to get a copy of the template and a spreadsheet with dummy data.
