The settings icon on the right side of Topbar gives access to the system functions. Clicking on the name of the Patient, in this case, Mrs Maureen Andrews will switch from full-screen Topbar view to the patient's record open in your GP application. If you are already viewing a patient and don't have Topbar on full-screen view, nothing will happen.
The refresh icon on the left will reload the patient data and apply any changes you have entered into the patient record that is checked by Topbar. However normally Topbar will pick up changes as you enter them, so there shouldn't be any need to manually refresh the patient record.
The settings menu icon will open a settings menu with a number of options to customise Topbar according to your preferences.
The 'My Account' link will open a new page in your browser on users.pencs.com.au where you can change your details and update your password if desired. The Sign Out link will sign you out of Topbar while leaving the application running – if you have enabled the single sign-on this computer it will also unlink Topbar from your clinical system sign on. We recommend closing your clinical system as this will sign you out of Topbar while leaving the link between Topbar and the clinical system sign-on enabled or click on the X to close Topbar.
This link will open the feedback app, please see Feedback App for full details
Application SettingsHere you can link your clinical system login to your Topbar logon to make your login to Topbar easier. Once linked you won't have to enter your Topbar username and password. When logging out of your clinical system, Topbar will automatically log you out, too.
You can also set Topbar up to start when you start up your computer using the 'Auto Startup' option and set your preferred time for Topbar server updates. The default update time is 2 AM. For full details on how to configure the single sign-on and auto startup please check here: Topbar Startup and Single Sign-On
