This functionality is available in the Winter ’16 and later versions of the Customer Service (Napili) template.
Go to Settings | Developer.
The information that you add on this page appears in the Community Creation wizard and helps users understand the purpose and benefits of your template.
Add a unique name for the template and select a category.
Add at least one image, which is used as the thumbnail image. The recommended image dimensions are 1260 x 820px.
You can add two additional images that appear in the detailed description of the template.
Enter a summary that describes the purpose of the template.
Enter at least one key feature of your template.
The feature titles appear under the thumbnail in the Community Creation wizard, and the feature descriptions appear in the template’s detailed description.
Click Export Template.
After you export a template, it appears in the Community Creation wizard in your org, where you can use it as a base for building new communities. Similarly, if you package the template and install it in another org, the template appears in that org’s Community Creation wizard.
If you want to package the exported template:
From Setup, enter Package in the Quick Find box, and then click Packages.
Select Lightning Community Template as the component type.
Upload the package, and share the link privately with your clients, customers, or partners.
To delete exported and imported templates, from Setup, enter Lightning Community Templates in the Quick Find box, and then click Lightning Community Templates. Deleting a template from your org doesn’t affect communities that are already based on the template.
