Introducing the PBworks Template Store

The Template Store serves many professions

The great thing about PBworks is that you can use it to do just about anything.

The bad thing about PBworks (at least for those of us who tell its story for a living) is that you can use it to do just about anything.

Saying that PBworks combines wikis, document management, project management, social networking, microblogging, and real-time communications (with integrated voice coming soon) requires strong lungs.  More importantly, simply listing all the features in PBworks doesn’t necessarily tell you how it solves *your* particular problem.

That’s why we built the Template Store.

Not only does the Template Store show how you can use PBworks workspaces to solve specific problems, you can clone these examples into your own PBworks network, where you can customize them to meet your needs, or even convert them into custom workspace templates.

Plus, all 25+ of our templates are free of charge to PBworks users.

There are templates for specific industries (e.g. a Client Engagement Template for consultants, a PR Client Extranet for marketers) as well as specific functions and processes (a Branch Office Intranet for corporate use, a Presales Extranet for sales, and a Competitive Analysis Template for marketing).

If you’re already using PBworks Business Edition (formerly Project Edition) or Legal Edition, you can access the Template Store from your network — chose ‘Workspaces’ and select “Template Store.”

If you don’t currently have a network, you can preview the Template Store here.  You can even submit your own templates for inclusion.

Check out the Template Store and see if there’s a template to solve your problem.  And if not, leave a comment, and we’ll work on building one!
