The new update on R4 that has changed all the icons is an absolute nightmare to work with. We have given it 2 weeks and it is not getting easier.
The system has only changed one screen to be black icons and the rest of R4 is as normal which makes it worse.
There is now no £ by a patients name if they owe money.
Some icons do not make sense eg a person with a pen isn't what you would expect.
Were the icons made black just to save money !!!!!!!!!
It seems like the design has gone backwards!!
Not very clear where icons are for payment, open course of treatment and the patient banner not being a solid colour but a thin outline!!!
Sorry guys, but not very impressed at all!!
Sorry for the delay in coming back to you, thank you for your feedback, its a shame to hear you are not getting along with the changes, we did a large amount of research prior to release and beta testing and the feedback was rather positive,
We do value your thoughts and I will pass on your comments to the teams involved and these will be taken on board
I attended Dental Summit today and I have to say one think - R4 ver 7 is a big disappointment. It is a pretty skin (on surface) with a docking bar feature, nothing else. On top of this, these black icons are a nightmare - I struggled to use them today during the summit. The are unintuitive, hard to distinguish between, too small. I am unsure if we are going to upgrade to 7 at all for those reasons (however I like the docking bar!)
Having run the update at one of our practices I can say the feedback from staff is that it is awful to work with and from what I've seen I agree. Those black icons are confusing not helpful at all. I am currently putting off running the update at our other practice as I am hoping that you see sense and put it back.
i agree with you. the icons are very difficult to differentiate between as they are all one colour and look very similar. They cant be picked out quickly and some of them dont quite go with their meanings. howver, when you click in to a patients details, voila, the old, easy to use icons are there. can they not be the same throughout the system i wonder ?
