    If the description and note field could also be added into all of the manager reports to easily see if it was a cont care, treatment, or collection call letter etc.

    Allow custom Types for Office Journal Entry at minimum to include Email option. OJ should be linked to Family File to allow contact info.

    Yes please! Custom types and color coding! It would be so easy to pick out the journal entries we are looking for easily. The journal can get so cluttered and tedious to review.

    Need to be able to add custom types and we do need full names of the people making the notes

    Also, would prefer that the OJ creator could be specified by Initials rather than Prov or Staff Number. its difficult for a large or small office to remember who each number is and you just want to know who had the communication real quickly if you are on the phone with a patient.

    There really needs to be more types of OJ entries at least, EMAIL/TEXT in addition to phone call and memorandum. Email or Text from Patient Engage should pop up in OJ as well as having sent a text or email.

    Please enlarge the Info screen. There is so much wasted space and it will eliminate the need to scroll down to read the note.

    Wonderful idea and while you are at it, i have been asking for this years now....tie patient payments to specific claims like insurance payments.

    Also, ADD PATIENT INFO WITH PHONE NUMBER/EMAIL. We can't just open the OJ and contact a patient, the info isn't there. We should be connected to the Family File, eDex or More Information. And have the ability to direct dial, text or email. AND we should be able to directly import digital patient communications- such as text & emails..

    We will be closed until the Covid-19 emergency has been lifted.

    Oh yes! I'd love to see this.  I document emails and letters sent in the OJ and I always have to assign them the type "Miscellaneous." I'd love to see an "email" or "correspondence" option.

    I agree. I contact patients quite often by e-mail and I would love to have that option

    Ditto. "e-mail" would be nice, but customization would be ideal.

    I would like to add custom types too.

    I've always wondered why we are limited to the "types". GREAT idea!!!

    would love an "E-mail" tab instead of having to use the default "Reminder" or "Misc"

    I agree with this. It would be helpful if there were more categories that you can select from or create. Miscellaneous is a little vague, and it would be great if there was an Email category, etc..

    I agree and I also would like to be able to add catagories to "Filters"

    Greatly needed to update to add more categories to this subject. Also should be able to see the body content/correspondences that was sent to the web than just heading as "Patient correspondence sent to web".

    E-mail and text would be wonderful. But customizable would be ideal.
