Snippets allow you to insert a piece of template code into another template. This is an easy way to share template content that you use in more than one place. Use the Template Editor to create, edit and use snippets.
Built-in Letterhead, Address, Salutation, and Closing snippets
In order to allow you to customize the letterhead, salutation, address and the closing signature of all templates and still get the latest body from the built-in templates, we have created snippets. These snippets mean you don't need to edit every template in which these details appear, you can just clone and edit the snippet to have it apply across templates.
- All built-in templates use Letterhead and Closing snippets (if needed) to insert the letterhead and signature in each template. The Letterhead and Closing snippets automatically use the image files you set in Options to add a signature and logo.
- The Address snippet inserts the taxpayer's address wherever it is needed.
- For 2018 T1, we added a Salutation snippets for client (CSalutation), joint (JSalutation), family (FSalutation) and deceased taxpayers (DSalutation). Edit these to change the way you address the beginning of the letters. The Salutation snippets refer to the Address snippet.
