To begin in Customer's Canvas, first you need a Design. Customer’s Canvas supports InDesign as well as Photoshop files which can be imported into the system. You can also choose to use a blank design. Once you have a Design you can apply it to a Template. There are four different template editors, that can be used for different scenarios. Templates are then matched up with Products in the Online Tab of a Product in DocketManager.


Below is an outline of the Customer's Canvas interface with corresponding links that will provide you with more information.
