We’ve recently added a new notification which appears as a pink box at the bottom of your screen when a record is being saved. This is a small enhancement designed to show you what’s going on—and it’s more informative than the whirring wheel! It will tell you when your record is saving, and once saving is complete you may also see a confirmation of the new ID number.
Eagle-eyed system administrators out there may have spotted a new option the main system admin menu: Manage group and data view templates (although you may well call ‘groups’ ‘lists’).
This lets you save a group / data-view pairing as a template so you can quickly view the results. Templates will be listed in the main menu under groups (or lists) > view. Clicking on them there will immediately open up the group and data view.
So if you’ve got some groups and views that you use regularly in combination, setting up some templates will save you a few clicks.
When you’re working from home, communication becomes even more important than usual.
On Wednesday 24th June at 10 a.m. we will be hosting an open Zoom session where we’ll talk about communications in Lamplight, including using the Communications Module. We’ll be looking at sending emails and letters, using groups and starting a communication from the work record. We’ll also be explaining the new Word templates that let you set up your letter or document combining Microsoft Word formatting with Lamplight merge fields.
This session will take around 45 minutes, and is recommended for system admins.
If you’d like to come, send us an email and we’ll let you know the meeting details nearer the time.
If you couldn’t make it to our last video chat on remote working, database operators and security, why not take a look?
