How to upload original practice documents




  • Gillian

    Hi Nicole, I'd be happy to help. You can create customized Assessment templates under Settings > Notes and Forms > New Template. This will allow you to use your customized original Assessment in SimplePractice, lock the Assessment, and sign it. We have a great class on building customized templates that you can find at

    Hi Gillian,

    Thanks for getting back to me. I want to upload a PDF that I previously created. Is there a way to upload a PDF to my practice's assessment documents?

    Hi Nicole and Chanell, you can upload a PDF document to your client's file by hitting the Upload button in the top right, or to your Settings > Client Portal > Shared Documents and Files to store a copy you can send to any of your clients. However, these PDFs will be read-only files and you won't be able to fill them out, or sign them in SimplePractice. To create a fillable Assessment, you'll need to recreate your Assessment as a template in our system by going to Settings > Notes & Forms > +Create New Template and select Assessment as the template type.
