Yes you can, but a risk template will overwrite all information in a risk register. Therefore, it is better to think of how risk templates differ from risk registers.
Risk templates are lists of risks with risk assignments. Assignments are composed of Type, Chance, Outcome Type, Outcome, and statistical distribution e.g. Task, 50%, Relative Delay, 0% Low - 10% Most Likely - 25% High, Triangular.
Risk Registers are lists of risks with their properties: Name, Manager, Date Identified etc. but do not include assignments.
You might think of them as risk templates as containing quantitative information, while risk registers contain qualitative or meta data about risks.
It is important to note when importing either risk registers (*.alr) or templates (*.aln) that they will overwrite all existing risk data and cannot be used to append existing risks.
