Initial Template Customization

In Financials, you can set the organization standards for the financial statements from within the CL - organization standards document.
As part of defining the standards for the client financial statements; there are options to help brand the financial statements for your organization. Template authors can manage the look and feel of the financial statements so that a consistent deliverable is provided across financial statements. Performing these tasks at the template level not only provides consistent deliverables, but reduces the amount of work that needs to be done in the client financial statements.
