If you're a Sharepoint user, here's a useful video from SharePoint Maven on how to upload a normal template* to SharePoint (without users accidentally saving over it).
*Note: do not use this method with macro-enabled templates. Instead of automatically creating a .docx copy, SharePoint creates a file called "DOTM File.dotm" or something similar.
This means you'll be opening and working with a macro-enabled template file, which is not what you want. You want to work with a normal .docx copy instead.
