How do I stop Genie from auto-capitalising the surname of a patient that contains Mac or Mc?
Genie likes to be helpful but sometimes its help isn't desired! In order to stop Genie from changing Old Macdonald to Old MacDonald you will need enter the desired text into the surname text field then hold down the Alt/Option key on your keyboard before clicking out of the text box. By holding down this Alt/Option key you are telling Genie you don't require its help and will happily keep the formatting you've typed yourself.
I have a male child listed as Mstr Jeremy Jones. Why is their gender defaulting to female?
This issue is being caused by Genie again trying to be helpful. Genie has been programmed to check the Title that is entered for a patient and use that Title to determine a patient's gender. This is usually great for patient's who have Ms, Mr, Mrs etc because Genie can correctly identify the gender from these titles.
Entering Mstr though confuses Genie - the Ms combination makes Genie assume you are referring to a female. In order to correctly have the gender calculated you should enter the full title of Master. Genie is able to identify Master as being of a male gender and will update the record accordingly.
