As a trainer, I know that I unfortunately do not have an answer to this question - I tell offices that I am training they can use a third party system (such as Blue Note) to communicate with each other instantly but that we currently do not have anything like that in SoftDent.  

I am interested to see if any other offices say they have come up with a "work around" or idea using SoftDent, but if they have, I haven't heard of it.

We actually use Skype for this, each computer in our office has it's own user name and we've created groups in which we notify and communicate with each other.  It works very well for us.

Interesting!  So you have Skype on each workstation ?  I'm not that familiar with it.  Could you explain a bit more how you have it set up?

thanks.

We use a program called slack, its like an instant messenger that you can send a message to a group or individual. I love it! Its simple to download and use.

We use slack too. We tried using BlueNote, but Slack is free, and very easy to us.

Our office uses bluenotes and we are very happy with it. It works great for us!
