What's New September 2016
Welcome to the September 2016 Update. For the month of September, our development team has prepared these new enhancements that we hope will help propel everyone into another productive fall season! We've had a crazy busy start by adding a host of new labs, be sure to check them out listed further down.
Next Update Note: We've scheduled the next EasyRx update for November. We've started a rather large project to revamp our Indirect Bonding and Aligner Prescriptions. To get these features ready to go, we'll need more than one month. Remember, we always welcome your feedback so if your practice or lab wants to request a feature or provide feedback, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
New Feature: EasyComments
We've added a supernacular new feature called EasyComments that is available to both Practices and Labs. You can now create and use pre-defined comments that you can instantly add to a prescription. This will allow you to quickly add any notes or important instructions to a prescription without needing to re-type it each time. Labs can likewise use this to quickly communicate important notes to a practice regarding an Rx or even add instructions for the lab tech.
We wanted to make EasyComments simple to use from within the Comment screen. From the Comment screen, you can
- Show or Hide EasyComments
- Add a new EasyComment
- Edit a existing EasyComment
Add a new EasyComment
Click [Add new EasyComment] to add new pre-defined EasyComment.
Enter the Code and Comment. The Code is a internal code you can use for reference and can also be entered when creating a new Comment. The code can be any combination of numbers or characters.
When finished, choose [Save] to save or [Cancel] to cancel. Once saved, the new comments shows in your list of EasyComments. Click  to edit a EasyComment.
There are two ways to add a EasyComment to a prescription comment
From the list
Click on the [+] next in the EasyComments list. This enters the EasyComment into the Comment window. Edit or add additional comments as needed.
When typing a comment, enter [+] and the short code to quickly enter a EasyRx. For example, in this screens shot, LBA is the short code, +LBA has been entered and the full comment, "keep labial bow tight to the front will be entered in the comment"
You will have a chance to type in or delete any info to the Comment before you save it. Once it looks good, you can click [Save] and it will add that comment to the prescription.
EasyComments can also be setup via [Account Settings] then scrolling down to [EasyComments] section.
On this page, you can create a new EasyComment or review any existing EasyComments by editing or deleting them.
We've also added a new permission setting in the [User Accounts] where you can allow or disallow your other staff members to have the ability to edit/add new EasyComments. This security right can be found in the User Accounts setting on your Account Settings page.
On any New, Saved or Submitted Rx, click [Comments] to add EasyComments
If you add a comment to a prescription has already been submitted to your lab, they normally will get a notification or alert (depending on their Alert Notification settings) that tells them you have added new comments to an existing case.
We think this should easily (get it?) help you add comments to prescriptions. Try it out!
Time Needed field added to Rx
When creating a prescription in EasyRx, you will now have access to setting an optional [Time Needed] field. In addition to telling your lab what date you need your RX, by you can further specify a time for that day you'd need it by.
You can click [Enter Time Needed] which will allow you to set a time that you'd like the Rx back by. The time is chosen by drop-down boxes. You can choose an hour, minutes, and an AM or PM designation. For minutes, you can only choose 15 minute intervals.
- It is not required to enter a Time Needed. If no time is entered, only the Date Needed displays and prints.
Practices: User Accounts can now be configured to enable or disable ability to edit/add templates
EasyRx Practice Accounts can now add a new permission setting to their User Accounts. When creating or editing a User Account, your EasyRx administrator can check a box that will allow the user to edit templates in your EasyRx account. Leaving the box uncheck will not let the user edit or create new templates for the practice.
Here is an example of a User Account that is logged in that does not have permission to edit templates. This is what they will see when accessing the [Templates] page. Notice they will not see or be able to click on the [Edit] button next to any templates.
- Flip Lock Type 2 appliance can now be modified to eliminate lower lingual holding arches on lower 6s. Users can click on the lower Flip Lock Type 2 appliance, move the position of the LLHA from the 6s onto the 4s.
--after moving LLHA 6s to 4s-->
- New teeth positions available for Headgear Tubes: Headgear Tubes can now be placed on the 4s and 5s, in addition to the 6s and 7s.
- We've also renamed the existing part, Hanging Clasp, to Hang Clasp as a name correction.
