When a dictation is made, the dictating user can select a Dictation Type for each dictation. The Dictation Type can be used to identify the dictation as a certain type of dictation, e.g. a Minutes Of Meeting (MOM). The Dictation Type may signal to the transcriber how this dictation should be handled or it may be used to sort the order of dictations in the inbox. When sorting by Dictation Type, the system uses the initial letter for sorting in alphabetic order.
The system comes with a few default Dictation Types defined. The administrator can edit these, or create additional Dictation Types, on the 'Setup' page. There is no limit to the number of Dictation Types.
