The Message 

window allows you to add/remove pre-defined custom messages that can be inserted as a bill message during bill entry.


These pre-defined messages can be associated with a bill using the Bill Message icon from the Bill Entry window.

Using pre-defined messages can enhance efficient communication and quality control in the work flow process.

The primary purpose of these messages is to tag specific bills as problems. Adjusting the severity of the bill message can remove the bill from the normal work flow and direct it into the Problems workflow. For example, a message such as "needs supervisor attention" can be defined with an audit severity of Fail. This will ensure attention at a point in the work flow proces,since the bill will fail the audit and appear in the Problem folder in the Work Flow Manager.

Adding a new Bill Message to the pre-defined list:


Click the  button and choose the severity type (e.g. Low. Moderate, Pass, Fail, etc.).


Make a unique 2- digit key name.


Create the message associated with that key.


The Work Flow Wizard Message page displays the current predefined bill messages by:

  • Severity
  • Message key
  • Message text


Sort the lists by clicking a column heading. Reverse the sort by clicking the column heading once more.
