General Navigation - Drawer Overview (7.3 and earlier)

The Drawer functionality was adjusted in MacPractice builds after 7.3. You can read more about these changes in this article here.

The MacPractice Drawer contains additional features such as user created lists and reports on patient or user interactions within records. The options available in each tab vary by ability. For example, the Patients, Schedule, and EDR/EMR abilities have unique Drawer functions.

To open the Drawer, click the Screen_Shot_2020-11-30_at_12.08.52_PM.png button on the bottom left of the sidebar.

The Drawer will display tabs depending on the ability selected. These tabs within the Drawer may include the following, which we'll cover further in the article:

Lists Tab

The Lists tab displays lists created in the Reports ability and allows you to manually create lists. Lists are most often used to export specific sets of data or to create bulk notes, forms, or envelopes.

To manually create a list, click the plus button to create a new folder. Rename the folder and drag any list items from the MacPractice sidebar to the new list. List items might be patients from the Patient ability, Forms, Appointments, and so on.

Lists within the Lists tab display in three columns:

  • Name: The name of the list item, such as a patient name, form name, and so on.
  • Type: The type of the item within the list, such as patient, appointment, form, and so on.
  • Ability: The ability from which the list item was derived, such as Scheduling, Images (Attachments), Accounting (Ledger), and so on.
Lists within the Lists tab can be filtered with the User menu. Select Current User (default) to display only lists created by the logged in User, or all Users to display every list.
 
Lists can be exported with the Export button. Click the Export button and select the Presets and/or Format to apply to the resulting exported list. For more on using Lists with presets or exporting lists, see Lists/Exporting.
 
To print the list, click the print icon. Printing a list results in a three column document including the Name, Type, and Ability of each list item.
 
Report Tab
The Report Tab lists information associated to a specific record, such as a Reference, Appointment, Patient, and so on. For most records, the Report tab lists patients or user actions associated to the record and can be filtered by Patients or History (of User actions).
You can use the drop down to control what kind of information the Reports Tab will pull.
Patients
