General:

Notification Profile: The way notifications are set up under the Therap Notification Profile has been enhanced to make the notification system simpler. Previously, for any module, notification profiles were configured for each caseload. The new approach allows users to set a single notification profile for a particular module, eliminating the need for separate setup by caseload. Please note that due to this change, the number of notifications received by some users may increase.

Provider Administrators will find a new link under the Role area on their FirstPage, called the Default Notification Profile link. This allows the PA to create a specific notification profile and if required, this can be applied for all users in that agency. Users will also find these profiles created, listed under the Apply Default Notification Profile link on their FirstPage. From this list, they may select any notification profile and set this as their default notification profile for their user account (this will replace the notification profile currently set for them).

Autocomplete option for ‘Entered By’ field: The autocomplete feature has been extended to the ‘Entered By’ field on Search pages, for modules such as the T-Log, GER and ISP. When typing in the name of the person who created the form (first name then last name), a dropdown menu will automatically appear with the appropriate staff members names for the user to select.
