How to Use Snippets

Snippets are a new feature n TM3 Clinical and they allow you to quickly add previously created selections to your templates.  A Snippet can be added in two places in the templates section.  They are the Template Editor and from the Snippets section in Clinical Templates.

Template Editor

When you create a new template or are adding to an existing template you can click and drag over the text you want to add as a Snippet and press the Snippet button.  

When you press the Snippet button you will be asked to name the Snippet and a preview of what you are creating will be available.   When you are happy with the name and information that is in the Snippet click the Add button.   If you do not want to save your changes press the Cancel button or the X in the top right of the pop up.

To add the Snippet to a current template, open the template and click the Insert Snippet button.

This will open up the Insert a Snippet pop up.  You can choose to Insert or Preview the Snippet.  The Insert option in the bottom right will not be active unless Preview is selected first.
