This manual is designed for use with Genie version 8 and above. As new features are regularly added, an up to date online version of the manual is available via the Special menu in Genie. This manual covers both the Windows and Macintosh versions of Genie.

Conventions

We have used a number of font conventions to make it easier to determine whether we are talking about a button, a menu item, a field etc. These are:

 

Menu Items look like this Open > Appointments
File paths look like this /Applications/Genie/Genie.app
Buttons look like this Create Default
Fields look like this Patient Surname
Notes look like this This is important. Please read!

 

Where keyboard shortcuts have been documented, we have used the Windows terminology. Macintosh users will need to translate the documented key to the Macintosh equivalent, as described below:

 

Windows

Macintosh

Alt

Option

Ctrl

Command (The Apple Key)

Dates and Times

When used on a network, Genie uses the date and time set on the server computer. If the date and time showing in the Appointment Book is incorrect, the only possible cause is that the date and time is set incorrectly on the server. Make sure that you have set the AM and PM time correctly when setting the time on the server.
