Spotlight: PracticeMaster Alarms

January 2018    Tags: , ,

While you are more than likely using alarms on your calendar records, you may not be aware of the scope of how alarms can be set and snoozed.intervals

When creating a calendar entry, you can select a preset value for an alarm, or enter the desired alarm value. Optionally select a value or enter None if you do not want an alarm to be displayed, or use natural language, such as “tomorrow 3pm,” “next week,” “next month,” or “Monday.”

Once an alarm becomes due, the PracticeMaster Alarm Notification window is displayed. From this window, you can mark tasks as completed, clear alarms, and snooze alarms. All alarms are displayed in this window, eliminating multiple alarm windows upon opening PracticeMaster. You can elect to snooze one of the alarms, some of the alarms, or all of the alarms at one time.

When snoozing, the PracticeMaster Alarm Notification window includes the same preset PM_Alarmintervals as the Calendar record, but also includes “15 Minutes Before,” “10 Minutes Before,” “5 Minutes Before,” and “1 Minute Before,” provided the interval does not exceed the amount of time until the record’s Start Time. Snoozed alarms are remembered – this means that once an alarm is snoozed, the alarm will not be displayed again until the snooze time indicated, including when you close and reopen PracticeMaster. Additionally, if you are integrated with Microsoft Outlook, snoozing an alarm in one program also snoozes it in the other!

For more information on using natural language in alarms, open the Help by pressing F1 from within the software and enter “natural language” on the Index tab. For more general information on PracticeMaster alarms, enter “alarms” on the Index tab of the Help.

Make sure you don’t miss out on something important by taking advantage of PracticeMaster alarms.
