Specifying a Unique ID for Each Spreadsheet Row

To identify output, it is recommended that you designate your own identifying labels for spreadsheet rows using a column named id. If you choose not to designate ids, consider entering unique values in the output column instead. If you do not specify identifying labels at all, Templater will use the spreadsheet row's index to generate unique identifier numbers.

NOTE  For output naming purposes, values in an output column override values specified in an id column.

  1. To designate your own identifying labels, create a new column in your spreadsheet, and label it id.
  2. Specify a unique identifier for each row using any combination of letters and numbers.
  3. When Templater creates an output, it names the output by appending your specified id to the job prefix and target composition name.
  4. To set a job prefix, enter a value in the Job Prefix field in the Render Options group of the Templater Preferences Panel.
