Well we’re excited about this feature! The ability to track and assign tasks is fantastic for administrative staff and absentminded practitioners everywhere.
Jane’s note system pops up throughout different areas of Jane. You’ve seen the Note fields on appointments, claims, the patient profile, invoices and sprinkled around the various screens.
A reminder about how basic notes work can be found on this help document about Notes.
Creating a Task
Notes can be turned into Tasks.
You can switch from a note to a task using the little toggle icon on any note.
Once it is toggled over a couple of new fields appear: A Due Date and A Staff Assignment
You can assign the task a certain date and to a particular staff member either an admin staff or a practitioner.
Once added you’ll be able to see who created the task, when it’s due and to what, if anything the note is attached to (such as a claim or an invoice).
Notifications about Tasks
When you log in there’s now a badge that might appear beside your name. This badge will alert you if there are any tasks assigned to you that are either overdue or due in the next 36 hours.
You can access your tasks from the drop down under your name:
Which will slide out a list of all your tasks organized by due date:
You can also view all your tasks at any time from your Staff Profile.
Exploring a Task
You can look into a task to learn more by clicking on the Blue Text that links the task to the area of Jane on which it was originally created.
Completing a Task
Mark the Task as complete by clicking on the check box beside the task.
Re-assigning or editing a Task
If you don’t think that the task should be assigned to you, or you’ve completed the first step and want to pass it along to another Staff member for another step to be completed you can edit the task using the pencil icon.
And task notes can still be starred so they stay at the top of the list.
Okay! That’s the run down.
If you have any other questions about the Tasks feature or anything else in Jane don’t hesitate to get in touch.
