Messaging within an eReferral

Learn how to communicate with other referral stakeholders using the Messaging functionality.

When processing and managing incoming eReferrals, it can be necessary to communicate with the other referral stakeholders to gain additional or missing information. This is achieved using the 'Messaging' area within an eReferral.

Optional Step

Note: This is an optional step in the Guide to Receiving eReferrals, since it may not always be relevant or necessary to communicate with other referral stakeholders.

How do I send a message?

  • Within the 'Messaging' area, simply select the appropriate message recipient (if multiple parties are involved in the referral), type your message into the text box, optionally add an attachment, and press 'Send'.
  • The message recipient will receive an email notification that you have sent them a message.

    Tip: For increased efficiency, you can also create canned responses for your Ocean Site that are easily selectable using the speech bubble icon.

Additional Message Functionalities

  • Once a message has been sent, additional functionalities can be accessed by clicking clicking on the message header.
  • Note: The 'Amend' and 'Delete' options are only available to the user who sent the message.
