1) How can I set up a team/create my own teams?

2) How can I see what teams everyone at my practice are part of and add them or remove them from a team?

You currently can’t, but we will look at building this in the future.

3) What happens when I am away, who will see my response?

All messages for the whole practice can be seen in the “All” Inbox.

4) How can I make sure that patient responses aren’t missed?

A member of staff can be responsible for monitoring the “All” folder for un-actioned conversations.

5) How can I see all previous messages that have been sent to a patient or check a message delivery status for a particular patient?

Open the patient in EMIS/S1, open inbox, click the patient's name under “Current EMIS patient.”

6) I’ve lost a patient response, how can I find it?

If you sent it, the response should come back to you. If you assigned it somewhere and can’t remember where, you can find this in the “All” Inbox (organised chronologically by last action time) OR open the “Current EMIS patient” to see the patients thread.

7) How can I mark something as unread?

You currently can’t. However, a message that has been read by one person in a Team, will still be unread for all other users in that Team.

8) What happens to a notification once something has been marked as "Done"?

The notification will disappear from your inbox as well as anyone else who is in that Team. Read more about notification here.
