Templates to create cards

We know that quickly creating cards is important for your company, that's why we present Templates, to simplify and speed up this process on many cards with the same configurations.

What is Templates?

The template is a default information template that is used to create new cards. In the template you can preset all the settings of a card such as: type, alias, limit, period of use, days of use, category restrictions, etc; making the creation of cards more agile and simple for your company.

Example: I want to create a meal card for my 50 employees. Instead of going one by one and setting the amount per day, I can go to the card templates, create a template with the information I want as default and now in the “new card” section I select the “template selector”, choose the one I created above, and the configuration will load instantly.

Likewise, I have the option to edit that specific card (not the template) at the time. I can also create multiple cards at the same time with the same template for multiple users. That template will save me time and streamline my processes.

How does it work?

  1. Enter your Clara platform and go to the Cards section, you will find an additional tab like “Templates”; Select the “New Template +” option and a form will appear.
  2. Next, you can fill out the fields you want as default:
    Template alias
    Card alias (this is how you will be able to recognize the card)
    Card type (Virtual, Black or White)
    Credit limit
    If you wish, the template can also include advanced settings.
  3. Select Create.
  4. Now, you can return to the “Summary” section; create a “New card” and in the Templates option, select the alias of the template that was just created.
  5. The fields you chose as default will be filled automatically; create the card and that's it!
