Example: Waiting Room Screen

The following screen configuration is an example of how to create a waiting room screen that does not show appointment reason, linked appointments in upcoming appointments, or patient ID, but shows the ward.

  1. Go to Settings > Screens.

  2. Right-click the link under Use this URL for the screens and open it in a separate window or tab. If you want to be able to test your screen setup, open the link to an incognito window. You will use the pin code on the screen in step 5 to connect your screen configuration to the monitor or TV you will be using as your digital whiteboard.

  3. Select Add new screen > Dashboard.
  4. Add a name for your screen.
  5. In the Connect screen with PIN code field, add the pin code from the page you opened in step 1. 
  6. Select the screen orientation: Landscape or Portrait.
  7. If you want to use Dark mode for the screen, select Scheduled and select the start and end time for the dark mode. For example, you may want to use dark mode during the night in a waiting area. If you do not want to use dark mode at all, select Off.
  8. Under List options:
    • Select Outpatient and/or Inpatient as consultation types.
    • Set the patient sort order.
    • Select Show arrived, Show waiting for discharge, and Show upcoming. For upcoming and passed appointments, select the time frames from which to show appointments.
  9. Under Filter by, you can select filters to view specific species, wards, or patient locations. If you use both the wards and patient locations filters, select the Condition option:
    • and: Patients that are in both the selected ward and location are shown.
    • or: Patients that ate in either the selected ward or location (not necessarily both) are shown. 
  10. Under Other options, select Show patient name and Show ward.
  11. Select Save to enable your screen configuration.

Using this configuration, your waiting room screen will look similar to this:
