Groupwise - Delayed Emails:
Did you know that you can schedule delayed emails from groupwise? This can be very useful for notifying residents & faculty of teaching sessions, meetings, conferences, reminder notices, etc. This function can be used for email or appointments. With so many sessions and reminder notices to send on a weekly basis, this is a simple solution. Steps:
select your function ie new email or new appointment
click the send options tab
click delay delivery, then select either the numbers of days or the date you wish the email or appointment to be sent
When you have opened one of the "Individual Detail Forms" (i.e. "Training Information) and have it as a tab, right click on the tab, you can choose between having a vertical or horizontal tab group. This is great when reviewing multiple trainees.
Groupwise - Schedule a Reminder:
As you complete a recurring activity, schedule a reminder about the next occurrence in your calendar or, for more frequent ones, schedule calendar recurrences -- schedule EVERYTHING and then change the colour to complete once you have done it. Review the previous day each day for anything you missed.
Post Event Review:
Make notes the day of/after a major event has taken place (CaRMS, Research Day, OSCE, etc). Update your checklist/SOPs with anything that didn't work, or anything missed. It is tempting to get on with other work and not do this right away, but as we all know, recall is best immediately after.
Electronic Post-It Notes:
Electronic Post it Notes! Go to the microsoft icon at the bottom left hand side of your screen and left click.....about 1/2 way down you will see an icon for sticky notes......click on +new note.....type away!! Once you have created one you can simply add more by clicking the plus sign on the top left of the existing post it note. When you are done with it click on the x on the top right of the post it note to delete. You can even change the colors by right-clicking on the note!! If you cannot see it right away click on all programs then click on accessories and then click on sticky notes. It will come up and then you can pin it to your task bar.
