Ariba offers many out of the box templates for use by any customer, but Sourcing Pro users have the ability to customize templates as needed. Most options in a template can defaulted to a particular option, or you can choose to allow the end user to make the selection as he creates the event. Additionally, you can control what types of items and lots can be added to events. After you have reviewed your sourcing process, you should also evaluate whether or not you need to make customizations to your templates. Be sure to check the RFx Template Hub on Ariba Exchange.
