The field does not seems to get populated when a template is applied.
The icon 'Field modified by template' shows but field seems empty.
This issue is happening when the value been populated is an inactive record.
For example, if the 'Database' Group is not active, the template 'Database Restore' won't populate the field Assignment group as it should (the field gets populated but the user can't tell because the field looks empty. If the user save the record, the Group will start showing)
