Whereas in the past accepting updates to QMS Practice Focus was optional. However, as of version 1.3.7.xxxx it is now mandatory to accept these updates before having access to all available features. This page is designed to answer the more common questions arising from this change but if you need further clarification, please email support@qms-uk.com.

Why have you introduced mandatory updates?

It is important that any figures displayed in reports and any data exports from QMS Practice Focus are based on the latest audit rules and include any changes as are released periodically.

What will happen if I don't accept the update when offered?

You will still be able to view reports but you will not be able to refresh your data, export data or generate new reports until you have accepted the update. If you don't wish to update, select Update Later from the update notification.

What will I see when I'm offered an update?

You will see the following dialogue. If this message isn't displayed, it may be that you are still using a version of Practice Focus older than version 1.3.7.xxxx. If this is the case, please still accept the update when offered.

Is it important to accept updates to Reports on other machines?

Yes, it is important to always accept updates to reports when offered. This is on order to ensure that the figures you are viewing are based upon the latest audit rules and include any changes as are released periodically.
