Q: Can agents edit market alert templates?

A: No, agents cannot edit market alert templates.
If an agent wants to change a template, they need to create a new one and delete the old one.

Q: If an agent makes changes to a template, will it change any alerts made from that template?

A: Currently, templates cannot be edited. Therefore, any alerts created from a template will not be changed or updated if the template is altered. To update an alert, a new one must be saved for the contact, either from a new template or by creating a new alert from scratch.

Q: My client has a Market Activity Alert I was editing but now I want to save that as a template, where can I do this?
