When a physician annotates a page with either a pre-set note (by clicking on a checkbox) or by entering a free-form text note, the option "Action Items" on the main menu is highlighted in pink. This is the cue for a staff member to view these pages and carry out the requested actions.
In that screen, the user can view the notes and take appropriate action. Then, by right-clicking on the icon, a panel of options is presented.
Clicking on the Checkmark button will graphically affix a checkmark in the upper-left corner of the page, which is how the clerk indicates that all requested actions have been carried out.
Only when the page has been checkmarked can it be filed away. VuFax will not allow these pages to be filed away until they have been checkmarked.
