This template allows administrators even greater flexibility than existing default InfoReady Templates. The chart below highlights key differences among the Form Designer, Funding, and General templates so administrators can choose the correct template from the beginning.


Notes: 
- Once a base template is selected from the Create tab, the opportunity cannot be changed to a different template.
- Existing opportunities and administrator-created templates cannot be transferred from one base template to another.
- If admins want to use the new Form Designer Template for current opportunities or previously created templates, those will need to be re-created using FDT.


Still not sure which template is right for your opportunity after perusing the chart below? Contact support@inforeadycorp.com for advice. We'll be happy to help!
