Using Med-Stop / Welcome screen - Quick Tasks and Statistics
When you login to Med-Stop, the first screen you get is the Welcome screen. It is highly customizable page presenting the most important statistics and information about your company.
The information about your company status and important alerts is presented on this page. The statistics are grouped to give you a clear view of the company status. Every group has it's own title, last updated time stamp, customization menu and of course the information itself.
The statistics are refreshed at specified periods of time to speed up the Welcome screen loading. They are refreshed automatically when the information covered by the specific category changes, also you can refresh them manually selecting the Refresh option from the statistic options menu.
You can organize this information by closing some not important to you statistic boxes and/or organizing the content in the columns. You can setup as many as 10 columns.

When you close the statistics box you can open it back by selecting it from the Show Statistic list on the left side of the Welcome screen. There is also a Reset button that allows you to reset the screen layout back to default.
