Sort by Tooth in Chart Module Behavior

Postby Rickliftig » Wed Sep 13, 2017 10:42 am

I regularly will click on the Tooth column to see the history of issues with one tooth or another. But, the resulting display does not seem to sort by date - it drives me a little batty, because 1) it's easy to miss a treatment hidden in the pile 2) it can be hard to get a good temporal perspective of what's going on.

Is there anyway to fix this behavior? And btw, what behavior am I seeing? What is the secondary sort column when I do this?

Thanks,

If you click on the Tooth column in the progress notes, then it will sort first by the tooth number, but then the sorting is indeterminate after that. If you want to see history for a tooth ordered by date, you can highlight the tooth on the graphical tooth chart, go to the Show tab, and check the Selected Teeth box.

You can also assign an F key to that. It will save you some clicks. All you have to do is select the tooth or teeth on the tooth chart and press the F key you assigned. In our case it's F4.
