Library vs. Template/Report - What do they mean?
The Library allow users to store data in the cloud and pull reports directly from the Web Portal. Cube users can navigate to the Library, open a saved report, and fetch or publish data right in the spreadsheet. Library reports can be particularly useful for non-finance Cube users. You can think of the Library as a centralized location to keep track of all the spreadsheets you want non-finance users or budget owners to utilize. For example, you could save a report for the Marketing Budget owner titled "Marketing Budget 2022", that budget owner could then navigate to the Library, pop open the report, fill in their budget detail, and publish the data to the cloud with one click. Library reports are available to all users in Cube but the ability to fetch and publish data within each report depends on that user's specific permissions.

Templates/Reports are for more general reports you're routinely using and would like to pull into a spreadsheet. You can create a Template/Report by publishing via your Cube Add-on. You'd first create the report in your spreadsheet with all the desired parameters and dimensions as well as any desired formatting. You would then publish the Template/Report using the Cube Add-On. Templates/Reports can be stored on an individual user basis or shared with all Cube users.
