Enhanced Signature Features

Version 14.8

The Document Management enhancements in OP 14.8 include an overhaul to the functionality in OP 14 that allows Providers to create and attach a signature to documents.

After importing a signature graphic using the Manage Documents window, these improvements make it simpler to link signatures to the Address Book and to attach signature graphics to documents.

With these enhancements, the View Linked Signature button in the Staff/Provider tab of the Edit Address Book window has been replaced with the Add Signature Graphic button.

  3. Click the Search button. OP 14 displays a list of search results.
