Review Your Default Templates & Template Settings

Review Ocean's pre-made templates that are used with Patient Messaging or Patient Reminders, allowing you to get started right away.

Your Ocean site includes pre-made templates, allowing you to get started right away with your Patient Messaging & Reminders products. These default templates include information and wording that patients will see when they receive a secure message or reminder from your clinic.

You can choose to use these templates as they appear by default, or you can use them as a content guide that can be customized to suit your clinic's needs.

  1. Open the Template Manager within the Ocean Portal.

    • In the top left corner of the Ocean Portal, select "Menu" and click "Templates". This brings you to the Template Manager.
  2. Review your list of templates.

    • The Template Manager shows your Ocean site's templates that can be used with Patient Messaging & Reminders.
    • You will find two pre-made templates ("Default - Secure Message" and "Default - Appointment Reminder") that you can use right away - one for Patient Messaging, and one for automatic Patient Reminders.
    • Press "Edit" next to one of the default templates to open the Template Editor.
  3. Review the default template content.

    • The Template Editor displays each different component of your template, with a description of the functionality.
    • The contents of the pre-made templates can be used immediately, or you can use it as a content guideline for further customization.
