Scribenote Desktop Widget [BETA]
Updated over a week ago

The Scribenote Desktop Widget is a downloadable desktop app that will eliminate the need to keep flipping back and forth between Scribenote and your PIMS while you're copying notes over, saving you precious minutes! πŸ’―

The widget will only display your completed (ie submitted) notes, so make sure you've reviewed any note still in drafts prior to using this exporting widget! πŸ—’οΈ

NOTE: The Scribenote Desktop Widget is currently only compatible with Windows computers. A Mac version of the Scribenote Desktop Widget will be in production in the near future!

Cool Things about the Desktop Widget 😎

  1. It's there when you need it, and hidden when you don't.

    • You can always have it open alongside your PIMS and move it to wherever is most convenient, then minimize it when you don't need it.

  2. You can call it ✨ Draggy-Droppy, Click to Copy ✨ because it's fun to say :)

  3. Did we mention it's completely free?

Where the Desktop Widget really shines is speeding up the data entry of complex PIMS note forms. For example, we've done tests with Avimark and noted a reduction of transfer time from approximately 45 seconds per record down to 15 seconds per record.

Where the Desktop Widget currently does not add value:

  • If you're on a system like Cornerstone that has just a text box for medical record entry, and you are already just pasting your entire SOAP in one click into the text box. This is already as streamlined as it gets.

  • You've spent the past few months carefully tuning a well-oiled export workflow with other members of the care team.

Setting up the Scribenote Desktop Widget

  1. Download the widget:

  2. Extract the .exe file

  3. Open the .exe file to install

  4. Sign in to your account (use the same credentials that you would use to sign in to the web or mobile app)

  5. (Optional) Click on the settings icon and select your PIMS system from the dropdown. This will help us improve the widget and eventually be able to tailor it for specific PIMS in the future!

  6. The home screen is where you can view your Inbox (only completed notes that are ready to export will show up in your widget)

Using the Scribenote Desktop Widget

Filtering your notes

There are a few options to find the note you'd like to copy.

  1. typing in the search bar

  2. selecting recent notes from past 24 hours or past 7 days

  3. appointment type

  4. oldest to newest

Viewing and exporting your notes

Click on a note to open it and you'll see several copy buttons for each of the SOAP fields as well as a copy button for the full SOAP with all the fields.

Expand to View. Click the down arrow on the right of the button to expand that section of the SOAP. This will allow you to view and read the entire section of the note. (Click the up arrow on that section to collapse it again.)

You will be able to export your full note or each SOAP section by:

(1) Draggy-Droppy. Click and hold the button, then drag to where you want the contents of the note to go!

NOTE: Some applications do not support dragging and dropping. In those cases, please use the click and paste functionality instead.


(2) Click to Copy. Click the button, then paste to where you want the contents of the note to go using Ctrl + V or right-clicking.

When you're done with exporting the note, you can click Mark as Exported to clear it from the widget (the note will now appear in the Exported tab in your expanded Inbox on the web app).

Tip: You can also have a team member do all the exporting/integration for you!

The widget is currently a beta feature, so we'd love to hear your thoughts and experience with the Scribenote Desktop Widget! Tell us here or through our support chat:
