Everyday Tools in Penelope
Making operations simpler
Save time and avoid tedious retyping by allowing Penelope smart forms to pull information from your database. Clients’ names, dates of birth, or other custom information can automatically appear in smart form fields as required.
Questions, sections, or entire pages of documents can be shown or hidden based on the way smart form questions are answered.
Flag workers based on the answers to questions in Penelope smart forms. Paired with workflow automation, these flags can automatically trigger other tasks, notifications, and alerts.
Revision ControlDocuments (or revisions of documents) can be locked to prevent editing or deletion. Signatures can be collected electronically with a mouse, a stylus, or even with your finger.
Penelope’s built-in scheduling tool gives users a clear and up-to-date picture of all the events and activities going on at any given time.
Make Scheduling Simple
Penelope’s visual scheduler makes it easy to see when staff and clients are available for appointments or events. Both service providers and admin staff can schedule appointments for clients and add additional case members, workers, and other contacts as needed.
Resources can be reserved for any appointment in Penelope. To help manage the tracking of your agency’s resources, you can sort them into categories like rooms, AV equipment, vehicles, or computers—whatever works best for you!
Book Recurring Appointments
Schedule recurring appointments by setting the cycle to repeat daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or on a custom schedule.
View Staff Availability
Staff can indicate their availability in Penelope by using the scheduling tool to book time for staff meetings, administrative work, or time spent out of the office.
Penelope allows you to create custom automated workflows with action triggers that send notifications and alerts to staff or clients via email or SMS. This improves efficiency by allowing your staff to spend less time on manual tasks and ensures that the right information gets to the right people at the right time.
Workflows are defined by the user and there’s no limit to the number you can create.
Workflows can be designed to trigger based on the time before or after an event, or at a key point in a client’s treatment. For example, you could create a workflow that emails intake forms to new clients three days before their first appointment.
Penelope can create automated workflows for each new intake, unsigned document, change in field value, service-related deadline, form completion, and more.
