You asked and we listened: Use Pinned notes to manage non-clinical reminders
Practice Fusion continues to take major steps toward updating your EHR with even more features and enhanced workflows. With Practice Fusion’s Pinned Note feature, we have made it easier for practice staff to quickly view pertinent custom details about patients before they are scheduled, before check in, or during a patient visit. A Pinned Note is the ideal place to record non-clinical information specific to an individual patient, where you can have important information readily available. Thanks you to everyone who voted and helped make the Practice Fusion EHR better for everyone. https://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/1845769

I’m excited to announce that as of 7/31/2015, we have added this important customization feature to the EHR.

Another related problem are the wild cards (??). Currently, I have to click twice in the text that has been added to the note before I can successfully tab to the wild card. Then, a period is added after the wild card entry, so I have to move the cursor past the period to move on. At this point, I'm going to have to stop using the wild card feature. Unfortunately, if I just put a stem in the template (e.g., "Pt today reports that s/he is doing [blank]) there will then be a period at the end of the stem, not allowing me to enter what I want to put in that field without moving past the period, again. But at least I won't have to click twice in the text area of the stem in order to be able to use the wild card. This is a major downgrade in functionality from the old system, which worked well.
You can hide inactive users on the schedule by adjusting your filters: https://help.practicefusion.com/s/article/How-can-I-hide-inactive-users-in-the-Schedule
Agree, this is a major problem. One potential easy fix for the schedule: make the edits saved. Now, every day I have to edit the the schedule to get rid of inactive users. It would be nice to only do this once.
In addition, it's really important to be able to not have to deal with inactive users/staff at all, with an option to make that possible.
