About Code Tables

Path: Practice Management tab > Coded Values

The Code Table window views and edits various drop-down fields that appear within the OP software. The Code Table Purpose panel displays all the drop-down fields in the OP software. If a checkmark is selected in the Allow Edits field in the Code Table Purpose panel, then the drop-down elements for that drop-down field can be added, edited, or deleted in the Elements grid in the bottom panel.

For example, when updating the Contact Relationship drop-down field in the Code Table Purpose panel, you notice there is not a selection for Foster Parent. The Code Table window is used to add that element.
