My Solutions Templates

Last Updated February 20, 2024

Overview

My Solutions are user-generated templates that allow you to stay up-to-date with your organization or partner’s latest brand guidelines, campaign, or content recommendations by easily sharing content between accounts. Then, using a secured distribution key, you can easily share the solution package that you’ve built between editor accounts.

How to Distribute “My Solutions” to a Solutions Subscriber

Providing a user Solutions Distribution Key to another WalkMe Editor user grants the user permission to access, download, and modify any Solution Templates created under the “My Solutions” category of the Solutions Gallery Content Solutions. This includes any future Solution Template created by the Solutions Provider.

Modifications made to a downloaded Solution Template’s deployable content by a Solutions Subscriber will not modify the Provider’s source Solution Template’s deployable content.

Solution Templates downloaded by a Solution Subscriber are a duplicate instance of the Solution Provider’s original content.
