How to use the Template Library

The Template Library contains dozens of pre-made templates that were created to help improve your documentation process. The templates are organized into two alphabetized categories: Progress Notes and Intake Forms.

Tip: We are constantly adding new templates to the library, so be sure to check back frequently. This guide lists our currently available pre-made templates: Progress Notes, Intake Forms, and Assessments templates in our Template Library

Here's how to access the Template Library:

  1. Log into your SimplePractice account.
  2. Go to My Account > Settings > Notes and Forms.
  3. Navigate to the Template Library tab.
  4. You can then choose to filter the templates by profession or specialty using the drop-down menu, preview an existing template, or +Add an existing template to your ‘My Notes and Forms’ section.

If you choose to +Add the existing template to your ‘My Notes and Forms’ section, you will immediately see the template added to that section. There, you can choose whether or not to customize it to meet your practice’s needs.

If you decide you would like to make changes, you have the option to do the following: 

  • Edit a question
  • Move a question
  • Require a question
  • Delete a question

Release of Information (ROI) templates

The Template Library also includes Release of Information (ROI) templates. These templates will need to be updated to align with your state's specific requirements.
