As of OpenVPMS 1.8 a new feature “Letterhead & Document Control” was introduced. This new feature gave practices greater control of the formatting and structure of their financial templates allowing many things to be customised without having to learn the Jasper Reports editing tool which has a very steep learning curve.
For many Practices there wasn’t a real benefit to implement this new feature so we maintained their existing templates.
With the subsequent release of OpenVPMS 1.9 and 2.0 Letterhead & Document control has many more uses specifically in the use of rich format email templates and the new reminder document templates. OpenVPMS uses this new feature in the standard templates we provide as part of the 2.0.3 upgrade implementation process.
If your practice is interested in implementing this new feature for your other financial templates please contact us and we can provide you with additional information.
