See here for information on report templates in Audiqueen versions up to 3.5.


Working Principle

Report and document templates are document models which define the lay-out and structure of the print report or the text document.  They contain variables, such as {{PatientLastName}}.  Whenever you make a report or document based on a template, the variable will be replaced by the real value, in this example, the last name of the patient.


Special variables are available to place graphical results, like audiograms, in the document.  See below for more details.


Audiqueen accommodates 2 separate sets of templates, one for print reports and another set for documents.  Audiqueen comes with a few built-in templates, but you can easily make many more and customize them to your liking.



The available report templates can be found 
in the drop-down list of the print form.
The available document templates can be found 
in the drop-down list of the Text Document creator.

  

How to create a print template?

Click on the three-dot-icon to open the template manager (you need administrator rights for this).


In the custom test Text (1), click on Format (2) and then on Configure (3) to open the template manager (you need administrator rights for this).




You now get a list of available templates with the following options: 

  • New to create a new report template from scratch.
  • Edit to open a template and modify it. 
  • Archive to remove the template from the list.  You can always retrieve it by checking the Show Archived check box.
  • Copy to make a copy of an existing template.  This is a practical manner to create a new template based on an existing one.




The New and Edit buttons open the template editor.  This is a built-in word processor.  You can create a template from scratch.  Another option is to open an existing word document and modify this.  After saving, this new template will become available in the template manager.  The only difference with other text editors is the availability of these 2 buttons (under the insert item in the ribbon):


Field button

This button shows all available variables.  The names speak for themselves.  Pick one variable to insert it in your text document, where you want the individual value to appear later in the report.



Graph button

This button shows all graph variables.  The names speak for themselves.  


The only exception is the variable {{GRAPH}}.  This generic variable will be replaced by the graph of the testtype that is  open when the print button is clicked.  So if audiometry is open and you click on print, the graph will display the audiogram.  If rhinomanometry is open, it will display the rhinomanometric graph.



Pick one variable to insert it in your text document, where you want the individual graph to appear later in the report.


The graph will now be replaced by the corresponding result, that will be fetched from the print shelf. 


It is important to shelve one or more test results before printing a report with such variable(s).
If not, no graph will appear in the report.

 You may notice that the variable looks like this: {{[GRAPH_SPEECH_AUDIOMETRY][H:XXX | W:XXX]}}.

The extension [H:XXX | W:XXX] refers to the desired dimension, where H:XXX stands for height (in pixels) and W:XXX for width (in pixels). So W:600 means: resize the graph (for instance the speech audiogram) to a width of 600 pixels. Audiqueen respects the original H:W ratio, which means it can handle only one size, either H or W. So you must manually change this extension to one of the following legal formats:
{{[GRAPH_SPEECH_AUDIOMETRY][H:XXX]}}     the speech audiogram will have a fixed height of XXX pixels
{{[GRAPH_SPEECH_AUDIOMETRY][W:XXX]}}    the speech audiogram will have a fixed width of XXX pixels
{{[GRAPH_SPEECH_AUDIOMETRY]}}                 the speech audiogram will be displayed at best fit
