To create your template, first create a new scout and title it whatever you would like (if you want to create multiple templates, name it specifically with what report template it will be).
Create your template including everything you would like to be on your report this year.
ALL TEXT INCLUDED ON THE REPORT WHEN SAVING AS A TEMPLATE WILL CARRY OVER TO THE TEMPLATE AND ANY NEW REPORTS CREATED WITH IT.
When you are done inputting everything into your template, click the create template button and name it whatever you would like.
After you save your template, it will then show up under the templates tab.
