Communication in Horus

  • Help contacts

  • As a foundation doctor, how do I know who to contact if I need help with my e-portfolio?
    • Foundation doctors can view a list of Horus ePortfolio administrators and foundation programme directors (FPDs) in their hospital/trust:

      1. Sign in to Horus
      2. Select "Help" from the main menu along the top
      3. Scroll down past the "Horus support website" link to see a list of local administrator contact details
      4. Scroll past this to see a list of local FPDs

  • Notices

  • Does Horus have a Notices section?
    • No. However, we are planning a section where administrators will be able to post notices for users in their location(s). It will be possible to target notices at specific group (e.g. F1/F2, trainers, FPDs, administrators) and notices will appear on users' home page.

      This feature will not be available during the 2017-18 training year. We aim to make it available by December 2018 (and sooner if we can).

      - Until this feature is available, administrators can use the "Placements overview / download" page to download a list of all foundation doctors in their area with the email address they are registered on Horus with. This can be used as the basis for an email distribution list.

      - Horus-registered email addresses for all other types of users can be copied in batches of 50 from the "Users" admin list (this list can also be filtered by location and type of user). 

  • Messaging

  • Does Horus have an internal messaging system?
    • No, Horus does not have an internal messaging system.

      Users are able to see the email address of other users as follows:

      • Administrators can see the email address of all foundation doctors and other users in their area
      • Supervisors can see the email address of all foundation doctors they supervise and all their other supervisors
        • This can be clicked to directly open a message in the user's own email client
      • Foundation doctors can see the email address of all of their supervisors
        • This can be clicked to directly open a message in the user's own email client

       

      Administrators will also be able to communicate with users in their location(s) using the Notices feature.
