Today's browsers let us multi-task better than ever ever…with tabs! 🎉 You can have multiple tabs open to different websites and quickly hop between them to get the information you need.
Use Tabs to Have Multiple Screens Open at Once
You can open any link in a new tab or new window:
But, we find new tabs quite a bit more efficient than new windows, so this tutorial will discuss how to browse with tabs!
Move Between Pages With Tabs
You can quickly and easily do this by holding the
Ctrl key (or
command if you're a Mac user) and then clicking on a link.
Instead of directing you away from the page, it will open this link as a separate tab.
Now you can keep your place within Cliniko, but have your other page loaded up in the "background"—so you can move between the pages with ease!
I Don't Know, It Seems Like a Lot of Extra Work!
Still not sure how useful this could be? Let's look at Reports. You might want to run different reports and be able to look at them at the same time:
Without tabbed browsing, you would click on one, wait for it to load, look at it, maybe print it…and then go back and do the same thing for another report. And another. And another.
Using tabs, though, just hold the
Ctrl key down while you click on each invoice. You'll then have a tab open for each report:
Which you can review, print, and do whatever you need do—without needing to click the "back" button each time!
Here's a little video of browsing with tabs, live and in action! 🎥
There are countless other places within Cliniko (as well as other websites or web apps) where this could be useful, such as creating invoices for patients on the Missed appointments report, or booking appointments for patients found on the Patients without upcoming appointments report, or printing a list of treatment notes.
