How do I display multiple patients on one reminder?

You will often see one client coming in with multiple patients for their vaccination. Animana allows you to send out one reminder that calls for all patients in one message.

Go to Settings > General Settings > Manage Content where you can enter different merge codes within the text to display client and patient specific information. To enter multiple patients on one reminder you can use straight brackets [ ] and the text will display all patients with a reminder on the same day, separated by ‘and‘.

Be aware: the use of straight brackets is only allowed once in one document!

Set up

Go to Settings > General Settings > Manage Content and select the text you want to use this functionality for. Or create a completely new one.

Example:

We would like to remind you that the vaccination(s) of [${patient.name} (${reminder.text})] is/are due on ${reminder.date}.

This will be displayed as:

We would like to remind you that the vaccination(s) of Max (Parvo + Leptospirosis) and Maggy (Leptospirosis) is/are due on July 12, 2016.

By adding an enter after the first straight bracket each patient will be printed on a separate line:

We would like to remind you that the vaccination(s) of [
${patient.name} (${reminder.text})] is/are due by ${reminder.date}.

Will be displayed as:

We would like to remind you that the vaccination(s) of
Max (Parvo + Leptospirosis) and
Maggy (Leptospirosis)
is/are due on July 12, 2016.
