[Template] Snippet / Message Template Manager

Copy templates anywhere, taken from a Google sheet

by @pixies


How to Use

Use the Quick Bar to pull up a list of message templates you define in a Google Sheet. You can add, modify, and delete templates in the Google Sheet, which will automatically update the PixieBrix sidebar.


Google Sheet: You will need a Google Sheet with some templates to start. You must follow the format below, with the word "Template" in column A, the actual template in column B. This must be in a tab named Templates.

Here's an Example Google Sheet with the correct format

Quick Bar: You must set up the Quick Bar if you have not done so. To do this, follow the Quick Bar setup documentation.
