CS-Link Tip: Reminder Email

 You should check your CS-Link InBasket daily. There may be times when you wish you could get a notification to your regular email that you have a message waiting for you in CS-Link.

You can. Just set up an email reminder about InBasket notifications. These can fire as frequently as daily, or less often, as you desire.

To do this, when you are in CS-Link's InBasket, click on User Settings. The third tab is called Reminder Email. You enter the email address you would like to receive the notification, and the types of messages you want to hear about (results, patient calls, staff messages, etc.). More information and a screen shot are at CS-Link Central.

To learn more about CS-Link and get through your day more efficiently, come to a Physician Efficiency Training session. The sessions last 90 minutes and take place in Cafeteria Conference Room C. The schedule:
