Adding Selection Options
The required fields so the system can calculate the correct dosage for the patient include
Dosage Amount – This is a “Number”
Measurement Type – This is a selection box
Doses Per Day – This is a “Number”
Number of Days – This is a “Number”
You can re-order the required fields but they cannot be deleted.
The measurement type field is more unique and you can modify it to include options such as grams, ml, oz, spoons, capsules, droppers
Each measurement options will give you the option of specifying how many grams, ml or oz the measurement types equals.
Example: Lets say you have a standard spoon which is packaged with your formula and that spoon holds 2g. You can add a measurement value of “Spoon” and tell the system that 2g fits in each spoon.
If a practitioner says take 2 spoons, 2x a day for 7 days, the system is able to calculate that 2 spoons equals 4g and the required dosage for the 7 days is 4g, twice a day for 7 days, which
