Please note: Recurring and Linked Actions are available as part of Birdie’s Advanced Care Management, Advanced, Premium and Plus packages. Please get in touch if interested in more information on this feature!
How to use linked actions
With linked actions, you can now assign an action to a specific visit, note or alert making it easy to get all the context you need when completing that action. This also helps to showcase the specific steps you have taken to resolve an issue.
There are three places you can link an action with a visit, note or alert:
Via the Log tab
Start by going to the Log tab and click on a visit card. In the sidebar, click on Actions. Here, you will be able to review any action already linked to this visit. Or you can create a new one by selecting the Add new action button.
Via the Inbox tab
Click on an alert card within the Inbox tab, In the sidebar, click on Actions. Here, you will be able to review any action already linked to this alert. Or you can create a new one by selecting the Add new action button.
Via the Carer/Client feed
Click into any note Carer and Client feed In the sidebar, click on Actions. Here, you will be able to review any action already linked to this visit. Or you can create a new one by selecting the Add new action button.
How to create an action
Once you have selected an alert, visit or note, click the Add new action button. From here you can add:
Once you are done, click Create action at the bottom of the pop-up. It will now be linked to the alert/note/visit. When you click into the action you can view where it is linked.
How to create a recurring action
We understand that there may be key tasks that happen on a recurring or regular basis and you need to maintain accountability for the completion of those actions, every time they need to occur. This is why you can now create a recurring action.
Once you have selected an alert, visit or note, click the Add new action button
and add the action you can now set actions to repeat over regular intervals. Such as every 3, 6 or 12 months.
You can also select a flexible or fixed due date for this action these mean:
Flexible- When the action is marked as done the next action will be generated for the months you have selected e,g 6 months later after the task has been marked
Fixed - The action will be due on a specific date
When you are done click Save.
Please note: If you create a recurring action that takes place on a fixed due date of the 31st (e.g. August 31st) and the following month only has 30 days, the action will reoccur on the last day of the month (September 30th). However, the action will then continue to recur on the 30th of the next month even if there are 31 days (e.g. October 30th). You can edit or remove the action if this is is a problem.
How to edit or remove a recurring action
If the recurring action you have created needs a different interval in which it occurs or needs to be a one-off action instead of repeating, you can do this by going back to the action and clicking Edit.
From here you can change the due date, when it repeats as well as who it is assigned to. If you need to stop the action from repeating, click the X in the Repeats box. This means that the action will only occur once.
It is not possible to remove or delete an action as this is an audit trail, however, you can archive an action. To do this, click on an action and click the three dots in the right-hand corner, from here you can click archive. The action will then move to the Archive tab.
It is not possible to archive a completed action.
