You can have a progress note templated pre-selected when creating a note by assigning a default progress note template. Go to Settings, then Services and select a service. Then, scroll to the Default progress note template. Select a template from the drop-down, then save the settings.
The progress note template will be selected when creating a note.
For example, if you have a standard Physiotherapy appointment, you can click Add progress note from the appointment details modal and the progress note template will be selected.
