  2. Select Material Templates view.
  3. Select New button.

Creation of Material Template:

When you create a New Material Template in Material Template view, this will also create a New material and the new Material can be used in other business transaction as like other materials.

When you set any Material as Set as template, this will create a New material Template in Material Template view.
