I want to create a yearbook for my school with Profile-Templates (think about a Facebook profile). Let's assume i have 3 of these Profile-Templates. All contain various graphics, styles and placeholders but all of them will keep the same fields like "lastname" or "birthday".
I want to fill many pages made from these Template but on every page there will be other data (other birthday, other lastname, ...)
When I change styles/placement/... on this Template it syncs across all pages that use these (thus i can add finer design details later or fix errors without having to fix it on 200 separate pages).
When someone doesn't like their template and prefers a different one i can just apply a different one and because it contaisn the same fields the data such as "lastname" wont change but the new styles/placements/... apply to it.
This is my vision. Is this even remotely possible? It seems to utterly important in InDesign. For example when i create a cookbook i want every page to look the same more or less but always with different recipes and different image.
I thought Master pages would work fine here but it turns out I cannot change the Fields i put in it.
I already searched here on Stackexchange and via Google but because i don't know how the feature is called (or even if something like this exists) I'd like to ask you guys
I hope this is possible. My InDesign skills aren't very high but i basically took this project to learn it so don't shy away from giving me advice to use hard to use features. Thanks
