When we are getting a new  release ready, we like to get it out there for testing and training by our staff and customers.  In order to do this, we have a Beta site.

Therap Beta is available at https://beta.therapservices.net

Therap Beta runs in our secure environment, but on a different set of servers from our production environment.  We take a copy of most of our database (we tend to leave out things like archives and attachments) and put it the Beta environment for you to work with.  This means that the data you see there will be data that you are used to, but you can test things out without having an impact on your real data.

You log in with you same login information (if you have recently changed your password, Beta may still have your old one).  The first thing you will see when you log in is a splash page reminding you not to enter real data.  I strongly recommend that you do not dismiss this splash page as it can easy to think that you are in production when you are in Beta.  There is also a second splash page which you should read.  This will tell you what the latest list of updates are that are available in Beta.  Once you get to the dashboard, you will also see that the system now has a red border.  This is just another reminder to you that you are in Beta.

If you would like to try a module that is not currently turned on for you, just get in touch and we would be happy to activate the feature in Beta at no cost.

We are still working on many of the features in the release, so once in a while you may see odd errors.  Don’t worry, it’s all part of the process.

Finally, once in a while we will refresh the copy of the database that we are using, so don’t assume that everything you put in will stay.

This is the perfect way to take a look at what life will look like under Individual Based Caseloads, so go ahead and take a look.

Let me know what you think.
