Updated over a week ago

There are 5 types of Auto-Notes in Scribenote:

  1. Medical Record

  2. Dental Record

  3. Dictation

  4. Recap

  5. Callback

Let's see what they mean, and how to use them! πŸ€“

Medical Record

This is most likely what you'll be using Scribenote for. It's the ultimate time-saver: click a button, record your full appointment, click stop, and you'll get a fully-formatted SOAP note.

Dental Record

You can create accurate and beautiful dental charts in just a few minutes of recording! No need to have an assistant write out dental notes while you have your hands full... simply record your dental dictation and let Scribenote handle the rest!

Sample Output:


You will get a transcript of your recording word-for-word in one text box for whatever you need the dictation for!

Sample output:


The Recap option is useful to summarize meetings, general conversations or any other type of recordings. 🀝 You'll get a summary of your Recap in a single text box.

Sample output for Recap:

Please note that there are rare cases where the AI might output a non-bullet point recap.


Use Callback for recording your side of the conversation in follow-up calls with your clients. Simply start by selecting Callback, start your recording, and begin your call on the clinic phone! In return, you'll get a summary of your Callback in a single text box.

If you'd like Scribenote to pick up your client's end of the call, you must put the clinic phone (or the phone being used to make the call) on speakerphone. πŸ”Š

To switch between these auto-note types, use the dropdown you see in the Create a Recording section on your Dashboard.

Similarly, this can be done on your mobile device as well.

If you accidentally recorded using the wrong auto-note type, fear not! You can change the type of note by reprocessing it. Here's how:

If you are having difficulties with the note having to retry, make sure that your Use Automation setting is toggled on. Here's more details on that:
