1. Default Sounds: By selecting a sound option from this list, you begin the process of adding a sound to an icon.

2. Custom Sounds: This section is for any uploaded sounds as discussed in “Upload Audio” section.

3. Device Settings: This section specifies what device you want the sound coming from and at what instance you want the sound initiate.

  • Action Initiated: this section tells the system to which devices you want the sound initiated, either the inside exam room, the outside exam room, or the flow station.
  • Action Priority Raised: the section tells the respective device to play the sound when the priority on that icon is raised.
  • Persistence for Normal: this section specifies the interval (as number of seconds) in sound alert for the icon at regular priority. If the number is set to ‘0’, this indicates no persistence of the sound alert. If it is set to ‘5’, this indicates to sound to alert every five seconds.
  • Persistence for High: this section specifies the interval (as number of seconds) in sound alert for the icon at high priority. The number of seconds set is how often the sound is initiated.

4. Sound Test: You can test your sound here. Remember to save your settings.
