As wedding pros, we're always collecting important information to help us better serve our clients. Being able to send electronic questionnaires will help make your booking and planning process even easier.
To create your first questionnaire template, head on over to the Settings menu, which you'll find towards the top right of your Pro Dashboard and follow the steps below!
Click on the Templates tab towards the top of your screen and select the Document option, which you'll see on the left.
Click on the gold Add New Button.
Chose the Questionnaire option from the menu.
Step 4: Give This Template A Name
The first thing you'll want to do is give your new template a name for future reference. Naming your templates is SUPER important, so you won't have any challenges finding the right template that you need down the road.
Pro Tip: Since all documents, including brochures, proposals, contracts AND questionnaires are all housed here as document templates, we recommend starting your template name with some indication of WHAT type of document this is, just to make it super easy and straightforward - and since templates are organized alphabetically, it helps to see each type of document grouped together.
Questionnaire // Design Questionnaire
Add an optional description for this template.
Note: This description is completely optional and is used as an internal reference for you and your team - your clients won't have access to see this!
Step 6: Click the gold Edit Document button.
If you've already set up your company branding, we'll automatically pull in your company logo at the top. But if your brochure template has a great big white space at the top of your document, take a moment to head over to your branding center, where you can upload your logo for a better branded experience in Aisle Planner.
As a Side note: You also have the option to hide this heading if you prefer to get creative and use your own custom heading. Just uncheck the "Show heading" box on the brochure template set up page for this template.

Step 10: Add An Optional Image Header
To add a heading image at the top, click on the gold Add Item At Top button.
Next, follow the prompts to upload your image/photo.
