Create template database

Postby serenityfamilydental » Tue Oct 02, 2018 4:13 pm

Hi, I wonder if there is a way to create a template database to share with other offices. This template database should have all the format/configuration, but without patient data, personal data. This is different than blank database that open dental put it in during installation. Thanks,

I would just take the blank database from the trial, don't enter any registration key into it, set it up however you want and then distribute copies of that database to anyone in the world.
The best thing about a boolean is even if you are wrong, you are only off by a bit.

The problem is that I don't want to re-configure the blank database. I would like to keep all formatting information of the existing database, but without patient data. Seems like there is no such thing. Thanks anyway.

Right, there is no "export settings" or "create template database from live database" currently. That would be a feature request.

We have done it multiple times. We are on monthly support. Check with the conversions department. There is a cost involved but they were able to give us just what you want when we opened satellites.

I did not know that was a thing. Very cool:

I was searching for the right word, Split, but had one of those moments.
We are all here to help each other. This was my turn. (Plus I like seeing my name in print!!)
