I'd like to request that Proclaim add the ability to create and save custom templates for a service. For the most part, we use the same order of service almost every Sunday - and there are certain slides for different service elements (i.e. meet and greet, pre-roll announcement slides) that almost never change. Every time we make a new presentation from scratch I have to rebuild all of this over again and it is painful. I find that it can be difficult and just as time consuming to try and modify an old presentation. Anyhow, I thought his might be something to think about and consider building in. Thanks!

Wouldn't it be just as easy to start a new presentation from scratch, but use the reuse items box as in the photo below? In fact, the best solution would be to create a presentation called "Saved Items" or "Service Items" and then save all your most used slides there.

The best recommendation is to utilize "Reuse Items" to pull those items from a template or previous presentation. As Josh observed, creating a template presentation and then duplicating it is another way to create a template.

I am in a series of meetings, so I change the date and then change only those slides that need to be changed, the songs, topic and texts.

I have a "skeleton" presentation that contains all the slides that I consistently use over a month. Some are used every week, others twice a month and others only once, but I find that it is much easier to duplicate this presentation and delete the slides I don't need (by deleting more than one at a time) than it is to remember which slides to add, find and re-use them one slide at a time.
