1 - Create a template column
The first step in creating an Awesome Table template is by inserting a new column in your datasheet. For this exercise, you'll label the new blank column's header "Template".
Then enter "cardsContent" as a keyword (parameter) in the second row (make sure that this is the only column that has this keyword).
2 - Create a template sheet
Then click the Add Sheet icon (+) on the bottom left of the status bar to insert a new blank sheet.
Rename the new sheet as needed (typical examples are: Template, mylayout, ...).
Only two rows are required in a template sheet: the header and the template itself.
