New Feature: Introducing the New Template Builder

Upgrades to the Template Builder

We’re excited to announce several big improvements that have come to the template builder. This newest update of the template builder introduces many features our customers have asked for as well as a few subtler changes such as a overhaul of our back-end infrastructure, resulting in a faster and more responsive interface. Read below to see the key changes you can use in the new template builder.

Clinical Note Preview
Quickly see what generated text will look like in your clinical note with the new ‘Preview’ feature, located underneath the clinical note text editor tab.
 EMR Software preview feature
Wide Fields
Full length fields are now available. To add a wide field, add any field to the template. Then click to edit the field and as long as there is an empty space to the left or right of the field, a checkbox will be present to set the field as a wide field.

Easily add empty rows
Mouse over any fields and an ‘Add row above’ indicator will appear. Clicking on this will add two adjacent empty spaces above the row that the indicator appears on.

A better field adding experience
The click and drag system has been removed. Now, click on the type of field you would like to add and all available spaces will be highlighted in green. Click on any highlighted space to add the field at that location. This makes adding fields easier with mousepad-based or touchscreen-based devices.

Now, when you select a field and decide against adding it to the template, you can cancel the action by selecting the red ‘Cancel adding field’ button, located below the Template Tools sidebar.
