Is it possible to setup a named view that is a template that can be used across all of my documents in Onshape?

    Yes! Very easy :)

    Method 1) Set up a new blank document with the views you want. Whenever starting a new document, just copy the workspace of this one - the assembly element will now have the named views. This is akin to building a 'template'.

    Method 2) Set up the 'template' as before and 'copy to clipboard' the assembly element. Now whenever you want to create an assembly in a new document, click on the '+' in the bottom left hand corner and select 'paste tab' - boom!

    These are two very easy ways to get what you want :)
