Entering a Diagnosis Using Keywords

In order to search/find the pre-built SMARText items for depression, and enter one into the chart, Press Enter again to create a new line under Active Problems, and Type depre. This time, in order to perform a search both locally and in the online library, add the SHIFT key to the previous key-command (i.e. Shift + F11).

Regarding Keywords:

1. A SMARText item can have an unlimited number of Keywords.

2. No SMARText item has every possible Keyword that users prefer.

3. Users can add Keywords to meet their preferences.

4. The longer the Keyword (i.e. typed entry to search), the faster the search.

 

Selecting a Diagnosis from a Shift+F11 List

When items in the online  library are selected  from the pop-up list and inserted (as shown above with depression), SOAPware automatically:

1. Downloads the item.

2. Adds the item to your local library.

3. Inserts into the field at the insertion point.
