Becoming Familiar with MOGO Windows
Becoming Familiar with MOGO Windows
You will want to become familiar with various features of using WIndows so that you can work quickly and efficiently in MOGO. Here are some terms you will see and hear frequently.
Menu Bar – The menu bar will be shown at the top of every screen. It contains all of the features you can use from that screen. Click one time on a heading and a menu will drop down. You will notice that one letter of the heading or a choice in the menu may be underlined. That means you can press the [Alt] key on your keyboard along with the underlined letter instead of clicking with the mouse. For example, [Alt+P] on the Patient Lookup List will drop down the choices under “Patient” on the menu bar. You can also use the up and down arrows on the keyboard to highlight a choice from a menu and then press [Enter] to activate that choice.
A checkmark next to some of the choices in a menu means that a feature will remain activated until you click again to deactivate it. For example, under the View menu on the Patient Lookup List, a checkmark next to Patient Picture means that this is activated. When a patient is highlighted on the Lookup List who has a profile picture in their Image Cabinet that picture will display in a popup window automatically. If you click to remove the checkmark the picture will no longer automatically display.
Icons – You will find icons throughout the program for features you will use most often. These features will also be available in the menu bar at the top of the screens. The icons range in size depending on the screen they are in, but generally the same icon is used for the same functions.
Status Bar – There will be a status bar at the bottom of many screens that may provide shortcuts for functions and commands as well as information about the current screen. For example, the status bar at the bottom of a patient’s Transaction screen will change, depending on where you last clicked on the screen.
Title Bar – The title bar is the header of any Windows based screen. It will display the name of the screen as well as other important information. For example, the top of the patient Transaction screen will display the patient name, their ID number, the ID number of the Family Head, and the number of people in this family.
Scroll Bars – There are scroll bars at the right side and on the bottom of screens if there is further information to be displayed. For example, On the Patient Lookup List, the scroll bars on the right side of the patient list will allow you to scroll through you entire list of patients, while the scroll bars at the bottom of the list allow you to see additional information for each patient.
Minimize, Maximize, Restore – These buttons, found in the upper right corner of each screen, allow you to alter the size of the screen. The Minimize button is represented by an underscore and will minimize the screen as opposed to closing it. This way you can jump between screens without having to close them. Some screens can be maximized to fit to the entire size of your monitor. If the screen you have open can be maximized, you will see a box button in the upper right hand corner. Clicking it will set the window to the maximum size, which will usually fit your entire monitor. If you have maximized the window, you will notice that the box button will change to a button with multiple boxes. This is now the Restore button. This will reset the screen to the size it was before you clicked maximize.
Close – You can close a screen in one of three possible ways. Most screens will have a close icon, represented by a door, that will close the window. Some screens will have a button that says close. All screens should have a Windows close button, represented by a large X in the upper right hand corner that will also close the screen.
Help – MOGO’s help is available throughout the program. Anywhere you see the help icon (represented by a question mark), or a button labeled Help,you can click on it to get that individual screen’s Help/FAQ page.
