Find SMARText Items
Accessing SMARText Items Manager
SMARText Items Manager Interface- Action Buttons
1. Search button- Allows the user to search SMARText Items after typing a single word into the Find field. If the Find field is left blank when searching, this will display a list of ALL SMARText Items. If the box for Include On line Library Items is checked, the search results will include SMARText Items created by SOAPware (green triangle items) and by other SOAPware users (yellow triangle items). If the box is not checked for Include On line Library Items, the results will include only SMARText Items from the users local database (local library).
2. Edit button- Using the Edit button will allow users to edit a SMARText Item. It is not recommended to edit anything other than the shortcut code for a SOAPware created item (green triangle item). If a user edits any other field of that item, this will prevent any updates for that item to be made. This includes any CPT Code, ICD code, or Description changes when applicable that SOAPware is required to make. For more information on Editing a SMARText Item, see: Creating and Editing SMARText Items in the SMARText Items Manager.
3. Create New SMARText Item button- Allows the user to create a new SMARText Item.
Click on each of the links below for additional information:
4. Remove button- Allows the user to remove a SMARText Item.
5. Print button- Allows the user to print a list of the SMARText Items that are currently displayed.
6. Download button- SMARText Items with a down-facing triangle will need to be downloaded before they can be used in the local database. Clicking on this button will download the highlighted SMARText Item to the user's local database (local library).
7. Upload button- Allows the user to upload a SMARText Item that they have created to "share" with other SOAPware users. Uploading the item will place it on the Online Library to be downloaded and used by other users.
8. Update button- This button should ONLY be Clicked during Non-Clinic hours. This action will update ALL SMARText Items with a green triangle and will add any new SOAPware created (green triangle) SMARText Items to the On line Library for use. This process may take any where from 45 minutes up to 2 hours to complete. It is recommended that this action be performed at least on a monthly basis to keep SMARText Items up to date. Note: If a user edits or changes a field other than the shortcut of a green triangle SMARText Item, it will not be updated. For information on Editing SMARText Items, Click here.

SMARText Items Manager Interface- Columns
Column #1: Triangles
- Upward facing triangle: Indicates the SMARText item is located on a user's local database.
- Downward facing triangle: Indicates the SMARText item is located on the SOAPware Online Library.

- Yellow triangle: Indicates that the SMARText item has been edited or created by a SOAPware user.

A feature to remember: SOAPware now has the ability for users to limit the display of SMARText items in the SMARText Items Manager, to those with green arrows only.
