Quick Reference Guide
For an overview of basic functionality of the OnePacs Cloud Report Generator/Editor, you can click on the Quick Reference Guide icon within the application.
Users may switch between structured report and pure text editing modes using the toggle buttons.
Basic (Text) Mode
Variables may be designated in report text using square brackets ("[" and "]"). Users may navigate variables with voice commands or key shortcuts.
In advanced mode the user will simply enter study findings which will be automatically inserted into the selected report template. A preview of the report is updated in real time. Users may use keywords to control the behavior of findings insertion. Please see the in-app documentation for more information.
For more detailed information about advanced features such as creating templates in the OnePacs Report Generator see https://wiki.onepacsforums.com/doku.php?id=rg:org
Automatic Token Updating
Report editor tokens are automatically updated on the screen as information is updated. For example, if patient history is added to a study after the reporting window is opened, it will automatically update both on in the information panel at the top of the screen and in the report text if the appropriate token is used. Report editor tokens are highlighted yellow.
OnePacs Report Generator functionality is available in both basic and advanced editing modes.
In basic mode, the user may enter findings on individual lines in the text editor. These findings may be applied to the selected template by pressing the "Generate Report" button.
In advanced mode, the findings entered are automatically applied to the report generator template selected and a preview is updated in real time.
Reporting preferences are available in the Reporting tab of the User Preferences.

Delay finalizing report|
This option allows the radiologist to click the "Complete" or "To Proofread" button to invoke a countdown timer that delays finalizing the report for the specified number of seconds. This allows the author to return to the report and make changes prior to finalization up until the timer expires.|

OnePacs Voice Recognition
OnePacs offers integrated voice recognition with its cloud-based reporting solution. A modern browser such as FireFox, Chrome or Edge is required. This feature is available on mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
When using OnePacs Voice Recognition (OPVR) with the Cloud Report Editor, it is important to use a professional-caliber microphone, such as a Philips SpeechMike, and to ensure that the correct microphone is selected in the web browser. For example, it is possible for a professional-quality microphone to be installed on a computer, but for the web browser to capture and use a different device, such as a built-in microphone for laptop systems, which will degrade performance.
On Chrome, selection of the correct microphone can be performed, or confirmed, by clicking on the small icon of a video camera in the upper right hand corner of the web browser URL address bar:
On Microsoft Windows systems, the microphone should be calibrated before use: How to set up and test microphones in Windows 10.
Within the Cloud Report Editor, when the microphone is active you may hover over the microphone icon to view the input device currently in use. Ensure that the expected device is selected.
When multiple studies are locked for reporting in the Cloud Report Editor, a tab panel will appear at the top of the screen. Each tab represents a study that is locked for reporting by the current user. All content below the tabs is specific to the selected tab/study. The selected tab/study will have a pulsing dot to indicate that it is the currently active case.
When using the report completion timer, typically used in conjunction with the "next case" feature, a tab will remain present and display the remaining time until report completion.
The user may click on the inactive tab pending completion and manually complete the report now or cancel report completion.
Study notes, flags and study files are available on the top right side of the screen.
