Create a new Snippet


Snippets are like Auto Text within MS Word and allow you to enter sentences or blocks of text for later use throughout the program. They can be used within the Consultation Notes in Client Details or within Letters and can be formatted. However, if the formatted text gets too large or complex it maybe better to create a letter in the format required rather than a snippet.
 
Snippets can be categorised to make them easier to manage. See details below on how to create Snippet Categories. The categories can be seen both within the letters section and on the right mouse click option within the Consultations details.
