Hippo Manager allows you to set inventory item and service codes to require a provider for invoicing. For any items or services set accordingly, a Veterinarian's name must be selected on the Checkout page before the system will add them to the invoice.
Setting the Require Provider function
1. Select Administration from the main menu on the left side of the screen, and then select the Items and Services icon.
2. On this page, use the filters to narrow the inventory search results list. Locate the item or service code you wish to update, and then select the Edit button. (If you are creating an entirely new inventory code, select the Create New Item button in the upper right corner of the page).
3. On the next page, in the Item Behavior section, select the Require Provider toggle to enable this feature.
4. Next, select the Save Item button to save changes.
How it Works: On the Checkout Page
On the Checkout page, if you are adding an inventory code that has "Require Provider" enabled but have not selected a provider, a message will appear as pictured below.
