Re-sending a documentAnswered
I sent a release form that was incomplete. I have fixed it and want to send it again, but the program doesn't want to allow this - presumably because it doesn't want to send extras to a client. Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
Hi Lena and Janet,
I can certainly clarify this for you.
1. Navigate to the SHARED WITH CLIENT box to the right of your client's file.
2. If a client hasn't completed a form you've sent them, then you'll see an X next to the form title. Click on the X to delete the form.
Here is a screenshot:
3. Click the Share button to the top right corner of the client's file, check the box next to the form to resend it.
4.If your client has completed the form, then you won't see the X in the SHARED WITH CLIENT box, but you'll be able to resend the form anyways.
Lastly, your clients can always complete forms that you've sent them by logging into their Client Portal.
I continue to send forms to new clients and I have heard several times that the forms expired and it was within 12 hours of being sent. Can my expiration dates for the forms be extended for a few days? What’s the longest amount of time until expiration? How can I change this? Thank you
Is there a number to call to ask questions? Please email me at email@example.com any info to help with forms expiring to soon. Thank you
And I assume when press "X" you are deleting the form? Or does that just release you to send the same form again, but you still keep the uploaded form?
Because what if you want to send a new Release of Information form to a different agency or professional but still want to keep the other one in place?
Hi All - Once you've clicked the X next to the form in the SHARED WITH CLIENT box, you'll need to resend them the form by clicking the Share button to the top right corner of their client file. You can also click the Share New link in the SHARED WITH CLIENT box.
It sounds like some of you are referring to the Client Portal Invitation Link expiring. When you send clients your intake packet for the first time, you're also sending them an invitation link to the Client Portal, where they'll complete the forms. However, the invitation link is a one time use link. After this initial invitation link, clients will need to enter their email address in the Client Portal form field to generate a new login link. They'll always be able to access any forms, or documents you've sent them in the past, but any old login links they used (including the Client Portal invitation link) won't work anymore.
Here's a breakdown of how the Passwordless Login works:
The Passwordless Login is a unique one-time use link that is only accessible through the client's email on file.
It automatically expires in 24 hours, or after being clicked on once. The Client Portal Invitation link is the only login link that doesn't expire in 24 hours, it only expires once it's been used.
Clients will be logged out and prompted to generate a new link after 15 minutes of inactivity on the Client Portal, even after having logged in.
If the client accidentally clicks an expired or used Sign In link, they will not be able to log into their Client Portal and will automatically be sent a new link to use via email.
If the link expires again, the client will need to request a new Sign-In link manually.
This guide goes into more detail on the Passwordless Login.
For your clients, I'd recommend forwarding this resource to help them login: Getting started guides for clients: How to log in to the Client Portal.
