Wellcome to Parallel 101 🙌 – Where we'll explain Parallel's most basic and important concepts.
How does Parallel work? 🧐
Parallel works with two main concepts: templates 📑 and parallels 🚀.
Parallel is a platform that helps you work smarter with your customers, suppliers and employees by simplifying and automating your legal and compliance processes. That's why any process in Parallel starts with a template ▶️.
If you are a lawyer, you probably have many contract templates in Word. You use them to create and execute contracts with your clients.
If you are a compliance officer, you probably have a template for a KYC questionnaire or an email asking for information from your client.
If you are a visa agent, you probably have some forms and documents that you use to apply for visas for your customers.
A template is the backbone or “skeleton” of your processes. It helps you save time, avoid errors and ensure consistency.
⚠️ Only Administrators and Members of an organization in Parallel can create Templates. Collaborators can't. Learn more about user roles in your organziation.

Every time you use one of your templates to start a new process you create a parallel.
You can create as many parallels as you want from any template.

You can send a parallel from one of your templates
You can also create and complete parallels yourself ☺️
