CS-Link Tip: In Basket Reminders Sent to Email

A couple months ago, the Patient Reminder List feature in CS-Link™ was covered in order to help you keep track of tasks related to a patient. Another useful reminder tool is the ability to send yourself reminder emails of unread In Basket messages. This tool is not limited to internal email addresses and can be convenient, especially if you do not access CS-Link on a daily basis.

To set this up, click the Personalize button with the wrench icon on the taskbar in the "In Basket" activity. Navigate to the tab labeled "Reminder Emails" in the pop-up window, click the button "Get Started" and finally enter your preferred email address.

This feature can also be customized to fit your needs. You have the option of choosing when to receive the reminder. For example, you can have a reminder email sent only if an In Basket message has not been read after three days.

Additionally, you can also choose which subset of In Basket folders (e.g., Results, Staff Messages, Discharge Notice, etc.) to receive reminders from, and when to receive the reminder for each folder. This feature is limited to messages only sent to you and does not include messages sent to a pool. The reminders are sent in batches on a daily basis so the shortest time to receive a reminder email will be the next day.
