Option for workspace template to not override all settings when first applied

What is the challenge?

When applying a workspace template, even if the settings are marked as unlocked in the template, once applied to a workspace the existing workspace settings will still be changed. This is not always the desired experience. If I have a field unlocked, I may want that team to maintain their current customization (for example, their custom terminology).

What is the impact?

The template always overriding settings (like layouts) means that applying a workspace template can involve a lot of change management for current teams. They will need to go back in and update their workspace settings to re-add their customizations. If I just want a few settings maintained across workspaces, a template does not make this easy and will cause unwanted settings updates.

Describe your idea
