How do I use short codes in a routine?

Short codes allow you to state the current dateday of the week and time in LifePod routines. Doing so can help ground your care recipient as well as manage scheduled activities, maintain engagement and track the progress of a day, week or month. 

 

To incorporate short codes into a routine: 

1. Log in to the LifePod Caregiver Portal. 

2. Edit an existing routine or create a new routine

3. Type a curly bracket “  {  “ into the desired location within the routine’s voice prompts 

4. A dropdown list appears — choose DateDay of the Week or Time 

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for any additional short codes 

6. Click “Save Routine
