When you create a new Template, you need to create its Release to make it available for use. The associated Writers cannot Instantiate a Template unless a Release is available for the Template.

In Navigation, locate the Template for which you want to create a Release. For example, you can find it in Message Flow | Inbox, or in TMail Pins | Recent. (Please see Navigation for more details.)

When a Template is Released multiple times, all the Releases are listed here. You can see the count of Releases in the tab, to know how many times it has been Released so far. For each Release, you can see an option to Instantiate it.

Releasing a Template means that it is available for use and you can Instantiate it. After Releasing a Template, all the associated Writers get a Message that a new Release of Template is created for this Template.

You can also use Template Store to Instantiate a Template. (Please see Instantiate a Template, and Template Store, for more details.) If a Template has multiple Releases, you can Instantiate it at a specific Release. The default is to always Instantiate at the latest Release.
