Is there a way to save a new template without making it active?
Not as far as I know. That's why you want to make sure you have a back-up of your existing template before you make any edits. To use your original instead of the edited template, you'd have to: Save a back-up of the original template at EHR/ Import Templates/Med Rec Utility Edit the template and save it. Go back to EHR/ Import Templates/Med Rec Utility and save a backup of the updated template While still in the Med Rec Utility, Restore your original template.
That's why I have a copy of Crystal at home so I mess around with my template without messing up the real deal.
