Copy a Custom Note Type

System Administrators and Providers can copy another user's custom note type and modify it for their own purpose. After entering a new name for the note, sections can be added, removed, renamed, or rearranged, as desired. Users who've been assigned the System Admin role can copy any note type created within the practice. Providers can copy another user's custom note type if it is published/shared.
