Different keywords for each




WHY !!!    Ok well I understand why from a computer technical point of view.


However from a user point of view it is a right pain in the err document maintenance !!!


OpenGI could if they wanted make it so letters would work from either brooks or APM to save us poor users much headache

If you use OpenWord then you do have the opportunity to use one keyword whether you are in BROOMS or APM (with the exception of level 1 and 2).


In BROOMS, if you create a separate document for BROOMS and APM then here's what you can do to quickly amend all BROOMS keywords to an APM style.


1) Copy your brooms document to a new document

2) ESC Q, File, Mode

3) ESC Q Replace

    Now replace all < with <p. but say Yes to query so that the replace function stops at each field and allows you to bypass it

    Now replace all [ with [p. but say Yes to query so that the replace function stops at each field and allows you to bypass it

    Subject to your document complexity you could now;

    ESC Q, Text Find

    Look for each "FOREACH" command and replace (for example) FOREACH CF with FOREACH p.CF

    Look for each "SELECT" command and replace (for example) SELECT CF with SELECT p.CF


This technique is really great if you have just spent hours (days!) creating a complex proposal form or similar but be very careful the first few times you try it.

Adding to that idea above, when you've created your templates in OpenWord, rather than creating them both in BROOMS for the end user to choose which one to use, try this...


Create a template with a simple name, like "Proposal" for example and then use keywords to redirect OpenWord to your new templates.


Basically, you could (as I have on my system) have multiple proposal forms, for various products and Insurers but just have a single letter from the end users, namely "Proposal Form" or "Proposal" in OpenWord.


By using a template which links other documents into it, you can reduce the choices for end users while maintaining complete control over what is actually generated.


Use IF commands with "NULL" or "NOTNULL" for the APM/BROOMS issue and it'll work with whatever Keywords you choose (Insurer/Policy Type etc are the most obvious).

    • Hi Claire,   We took on INVU back in 2008 and still use it today in its Virtual Cabinet guise. No issues with printing from VC whether that be to network printers or pdf and there are also options to send from VC to email which can be useful.    Overall, we remain very happy with VC so have seen no real advantage to move over to OpenAttach.   One little issue is we never managed to get the automatic indexing / filing of standard OGI/OpenWord letters and emails into VC. We just click a few buttons to file them manually.   Happy to chat through further if you wish - I will be at the Members day this coming Thursday    Darren
    • Hi @Clare Carter   I probably cant advise on day to day use / issues, but may be able to help although not sure of your question   Are you still on Virtual Cabinet (VC) and how are you trying to print on OGI - and what / where from   Also - I'm pretty sure there are minimal issues with transferring to OpenAttach - what are the concerns there?  
    • Just wondering if any of the current members have previously been using Virtual Cabinet, and which originally was Invu provided by Linden House.   It is only relatively recently that Open GI have come up with Open Attach but there is an issue in transferring data.   If anyone is still using Virtual Cabinet which evolved from Invu and Linden House, could they let me know whether they had any issues with Open GI and printing.    Thanks
    • Hi Andrew   I do have a copy - but you can get them / best to get latest copy from the support site - presumably you have a registered account??   Just go to the link here RMAR Reports and Spreadsheet   Any problems come back and let me know!
    • Hi   I am new to OGi and not sure how the system deals with the FCA required Client Money Calculation. A previous post mentioned a OGI PDF document detailing the reports to get the numbers and apparently there is a spreadsheet to input all the numbers as well.   Is anyone able to forward the PDF and spreadsheet or provide assistance please.   Thanks
