A collection of WebTrends settings that has a unique name and defines the content and appearance (language, style) of reports to which it is applied. When specified in conjunction with a profile, it determines a complete report configuration that can then be analyzed. In many cases, a given template can be applied to any profile, and a given profile can have many templates. A template allows you to automate and easily customize the content on WebTrends Analytics Reports for a specific business function or user. Templates give administrators and users the ability to customize their views, as well as assign dashboards, reports and language preferences to a given template.
