You’ve found a great bot template shared in the Community. Now what? Maybe there are a few settings you’d like to modify before adding the strategy to your portfolio.
You can save bot templates to your library and edit the automations and settings, including the custom inputs. Saved templates include the original custom inputs from the shared template, but you can quickly adjust the cloned bot’s inputs to fit your plan.
Custom inputs can always be modified, changed, added, and edited inside any automation you build or shared templates you clone. You can also add decision actions to build out the automation.
The automation editor displays all custom inputs used in the automation so you can review shared templates inputs before turning on the bot. Custom inputs add flexibility to an automation so you can use them dynamically across different ticker symbols and different market variables.
You can easily add additional custom inputs to expand the bot’s functionality. For example, if the original version did not assign an input to the decision recipe referencing a moving average, you could create an input for the value so the automation is more efficient in the future.
Custom inputs are a dynamic addition to any automation. Coupled with the ability to save and clone bot templates, you can now easily replicate and customize any strategy to fit your trading style.
