What is an Example code, and how do I use it?

Example Codes are various frameworks that help to speed up the customization process. Based on the practice type, size, and needs, using an Example lets users plug in their own details without having to start from scratch. This is because the Light Examples are already pre-built with many common messages and timers that type of office is most likely to require.

How to use a Example Code from the drop down menu

If BlueNote is in an original trial, users should be able to make changes at any downloaded client. Otherwise, see the Administrator information in the Related Articles below.

1. Open System Wide Changes by choosing Menu > Preferences > Advanced > System Wide Changes. Type in the word 'configure' (if prompted) and choose 'Edit Lights Configuration'. The BlueNote Light Panels layout below is the default configuration, which means that no customizations have been applied:

2. With the BlueNote Lights Configuration window open, tab up to Examples.

3. Read through the Examples information, then locate the drop-down icon and choose "Get Example" to choose that Example code. Come back to the Examples tab to select each other code that may also fit the office's needs.

4. Make any other changes to this configuration (see the 'System Wide Changes' Related Article below) and then Publish to Save the changes and publish them out to all online clients.

How to manually enter an Example Code

Examples were introduced in Version 8 with a few visual guides that still exist elsewhere on our website at the links below:

Dentistry

Eyecare

Healthcare

Veterinarians

Office/Industry

Once you have an Example Code chosen, you will need to either type the code into System Wide Changes manually, or paste it in using your Copy/Paste function in Windows. At any BlueNote client, open System Wide Changes by choosing Menu > Preferences > Advanced > System Wide Changes. Type in the word 'configure.'  Click on the Examples tab, then enter the code in the space provided and choose "Get Example." You'll see a confirmation that the code entered was applied.

The Example differences will now be visible in the Light Panels tab.

From here you can make edits, delete Lights, or create additional Lights. Be sure to tab to BlueNotes, as well as all of the other options to see all of the features that exist in this Example. When you're finished with further editing your Example, click on the Publish tab and Save and Publish changes. You can find more about editing Lights, BlueNotes and details about System Wide Changes in the Related Articles below.
