This video contains audio. Headphones are recommended.

The Checking Column on the Home Page

The Checking column displays all the electronic baskets containing scripts that have been dispensed and are now ready to be checked. The total number of items awaiting checking is displayed at the top of the checking queue. All baskets in the Checking column, initially show the status as “Ready to be Checked”

The Checking column is optional. If you don't see it, then it is likely that your pharmacy has chosen to disable it. See Configure the Column Settings for details.

Status of baskets on the Checking page

When any basket is double-clicked in the Checking column, MedView Flow understands that the specific basket is being checked and so opens up the Checking page and the same basket is selected. Similarly, if no basket is selected and you click Checking from the top navigation bar, then the first basket by default will be selected.

On the Checking page, the basket that is selected will now show the status of Checking. Similarly if any of the rest of the baskets are selected, the status will change from Ready to be Checked to Checking. Once the status is changed, it cannot be reverted to Ready to be Checked.

Mark all moves all baskets with the status Ready to be checked to DONE in bulk. Any basket with the Checking status won’t be moved and will have to be moved manually. You will see a message like this.
