Group Management

Group

Groups in AdviceOS need to be created before the user can perform any bulk related activities such as bulk actions, bulk emails, bulk FDS, bulk document actions, etc.

This section is for you to view any static and dynamic group that was created.

There are two options for groups:

-        Static – This group will have the same amount of member

-        Dynamic – This group will update the member list based on the perimeter that was being setup

o   For example: if the perimeter is set to filter newly created members, the dynamic group will add the newly created member as part of the member list



Add Static Group

Click on Add Static Group if you want to start a static group. You can also make it “public” as this will make the group you created available for all users in your practice.



Once you create the static group, three items will be available in the action button.



Edit

This will provide you with an option to edit the name, and description, and to make the group public.

 

Remove

This option will allow you to remove the group


Select Group

This option will allow you to start adding clients to the group

 

Click on add clients then it will provide you with a client search box.


You can do filtering in the search box to meet your requirement for your group.

For example, you just need to click on the  icon next to the heading of the table to specify your requirement.

 

 Click on Filter then you can either select one by one or select all.

Once you set up the filter for the group, the client list will be listed below. There is also a function to export in CSV (excel) format for the client list.



If you are not making the group as "public", no one else will have access to that particular group


Manage Groups (beta)

You can create "Dynamic" group from this section by creating the perimeter as a first step.

Click on the   icon and you can customize the columns for your filter.


Once you choose the columns, you can then click on the inverted triangle  next to the title of each column, this will allow you to do more filtering to meet your specification.

In this example, I am creating a dynamic group for any member with the surname Brown.

 

Once I setup the column and the filter to suit my requirement, I will then click +Create a new group to create this dynamic group.



Enter the details on the dynamic client group and choose the option of “current clients shown in groups table”.


You can also create a static group in this section as well by unticking dynamic group.


Please note that if you add any clients manually for the existing dynamic group, it will change the group type to static and there will be a prompt to ask if you want to keep the original dynamic group.





Bulk Actions

There are several items that you can under bulk actions such as :
  1. View Members (groups)

Please note that before you can do bulk actions, you would need to create groups first.



1) Select the bulk actions that you want to execute
2) This section will change depending on your bulk action selection
3) You will be required to enter verification code before the action take place

Campaign management

To start adding a campaign, click on "+add campaign" and then complete the campaign details.




You can add the campaign into a created group and you can also choose to use an email template  that you created under the email template management screen.
 


Bulk Emails

There are three actions that you can do in this section.
  1.       View members
  2.       Send Emails
  3.       Send Campaigns


Send Emails

In this section, you just have to choose the group for the bulk email, select the actions as send emails, then you can compose the email.





You can send a test email if you want to see what the display of the email to the recipient by clicking "send test email" (you have to enter verification code).

Please note to tick just one client under the list otherwise you will be receiving multiple emails for the test.



Once you are ready to send the bulk email, enter the verification code and click submit. A confirmation box will pop up for you to confirm to send the bulk email.


Once you send the bulk email, the sender will receive a confirmation email from adviseos.




Send Campaigns

Send campaigns is very similar in function as of  send emails.


The difference is that campaign can be attached with an email template. Once you choose the right campaign and you click on compose email, the email will be populated as per your chosen email template.


Bulk FDS

This section allows you to do any bulk action in relation to FDS/Service agreement.
  1. View Members
  2. Roll Service Periods
  3. Cancel Service Agreements
  4. Update reminder dates
  5. Manage Services
  6. Update FDS Settings
  7. Generate FDS Report
  8. Manage Consents


If some of the clients in the part of the group do not have a service agreement then they will not be visible in the group members table

Example of the screen for different actions - Cancel service agreements




1) Choose "cancel service agreement" for the action
2) This section will update based on the action that you choose on select actions
3) Verification code to be entered once you are ready to submit the action



Bulk Document Action

Bulk document action consists of two functions :
  1. Bulk Download
  2. Bulk Share Portal

Bulk Download

This function allows you to download a single document from multiple clients under a specific folder.

For example, under the group - new group static, we would like to download a file under the SOA folder from each of the clients.



Bulk Share to Portal

This function works the same way as of bulk download however instead of dowloading, it will push through the document into client's portal.


Bulk Email Report

This section will provide the user with the status of the bulk email. 

You have to choose the campaigns/bulk emails from the drop down menu and it will provide the list of clients and the email status report.
