  7. Click Continue twice.
  8. In Template Selection, select the template you want to edit and click on Use Template.
  9. The template will open in Word. Edit the yellow highlighted sections as required.
  10. If you would like to add your company logo to the header/footer, simply double click the top of the page and insert your company letterhead. 
  11. Click on File > Save As. Choose a different location to save the document.
  12. Close the Word document and click on Import Template…  within Template Selection.
  13. Browse for the Word document you just saved.
