I’ve participated in several discussions about how agencies wish they could have their policies on Therap somehow for easy access to users and I agree that this would be great.  We have three Therap specific Guides that I send out via SComm to all users, that staff are to post near every computer as a reference, and I wish I could just attach them somewhere in Therap for all to see (without doing some sort of crazy work-around by creating an ISP program and giving everyone access).

But until then, a co-worker of mine came up with an idea.  He created a specific SComm folder for Therap Guides, and whenever I send something out, he moves it to that folder.  He always has the guide in his SComm folder no matter where he logs-in on Therap.  This works great for him because he has the ability to create the folder in his account.

So then I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I could just create an agencywide folder that would show up in everyone’s My Folders, kind of like how I can create an agency wide Custom User Group.  Then every user would always have the most up-to-date guide in that folder, there would be no confusion as to which one to use, nothing hanging on the walls of the residence or office, and everyone would have the information at their fingertips.

If anyone else has any ideas about how to share this type of information with users in your agency, submit a comment here or add your thoughts to “Ideas!” at the bottom of every Therap page.
