Important Content Update Message
We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 20. OP 20 (official version 20.0.x) is the certified, 2015 Edition, version of the Office Practicum software. This is displayed in your software (Help tab > About) and in the Help Center tab labeled Version 20.0. We appreciate your patience as we continue to update all of our content.

When a parent self-registers, will he/she receive a notification when the child has been authenticated?

There is no notification made after a parent self-registers and the practice authenticates the child. The parent has to log in and check to see if their child appears. Note: This does not happen immediately. 

As an alternative, after the patient is authenticated, the practice can send a message from OP to the patient on the portal. That will push a notification to the parent (as long as the notification of a new message is enabled).
