1.  Go to Charts>Rx>Send E-rx.

2. Click on the menu icon as shown below and click on "Settings".

3. Click on "Preferences".

4. Click on "Prescription".

5. Create a snippet for the patient directions you most frequently use on the "Custom Additional Directions To Patient" by filling out the information and clicking on the "+" sign.

6. It will be added to the list.

7. You can create snippets for your most commonly used notes to the pharmacist on the "Custom Pharmacist Note" section. Add your note and click on "+" sign. 

8. You can create snippets for your most commonly used prescription comments on the "Custom Prescription Comments" section. Add your note and click on the "+" sign.

9. When you're done adding, click on the "Save" button.
