You can broadcast more than one message in English and French to all your clinic staff when they log into the CHR. You can use this feature for legal and security purposes or simple clinic reminders.
Your staff can read the message and continue logging in.
Or, you can specify that staff must acknowledge or agree to the information in the message before logging in. You can use this to display CHR terms and conditions and block access for non-accepting staff or users.
The messages that you must accept appear in your account in the Security settings. The date and time you accepted the message and the message content appear under the message title.
If you add a clinic-wide message in both English and French, it is displayed to your staff in their preferred language as set in their account preferences
You can configure a message to appear once at login, every time a user logs in, or at pre-defined periods. For example, you want users to accept the clinic's terms and conditions every year.
📌 Note: To configure these settings, you must have Edit Other Users and User Settings permissions. See User permissions.
