INTRODUCTION
This guide will take you through the functions and features of the dental portal and explains how to
access the various features.

then how to access the information and features in the portal.
More functionality will become available in the portal over the next month or so and this guide will be
updated to reflect the new features as soon as they become available.
In the meantime if you have any feedback on this guide or on the portal then you can email your
comment to [email protected]

request or forgotten credentials situation.

EDI PIN
Your EDI PIN or temporary EDI PIN can be requested via the EDI PIN page. Once again, the facilities
available to you on this page will vary depending on whether you are a provider or a performer.
10.1
Provider EDI PIN
The EDI PIN page when viewed as a provider will enable you to request temporary EDI PINs for
performers associated with your contracts. Their performer number and name is displayed along with
a request EDI PIN link [Figure 23]. Before requesting an EDI Temporary PIN for one of your
performers you will need to know the Site Number that they transmit from. The temporary PIN will
allow you to submit outstanding claims for a performer who is no longer at the practice.
Date: 21/7/12
23
Dental portal guidance manual v.1
Figure 23: Provider request temporary EDI PIN for Performer initial page
Selecting a performer and then clicking on the Request a temporary EDI PIN link will open a new page
[Figure 24] in which you may specify the site number for which the temporary EDI PIN is required.
Figure 24: Provider requests temporary EDI PIN for Performer
After entering the site number and clicking the Send request button, the portal will ask for password
confirmation. Having completed this, the temporary EDI PIN request will be sent for processing.
Alternatively you may discontinue the request at any stage by clicking the Cancel button.
If an additional PIN(s) is required for the same performer then further requests can be made, providing
they are not for the same site number.
Once the request has been sent you will be returned to the Temporary EDI PIN page with a
confirmation of request(s) displayed [Figure 25]. You will receive a response for the request via email
within 24 hours, the PIN number will not be held within the email this will be visible within the portal.
Figure 25: temporary EDI PIN request confirmation
After the request has been processed, you will receive an email confirming the request outcome
(normally within approximately 24 hours) – EDI PIN created or EDI PIN request rejected. The outcome
can also be verified (with the rejection reason if the request failed) on the portal EDI PIN page as per
Figure 26 below.
Performer 280992 has 2x EDI PIN requests logged –
o
Date: 21/7/12
The pin for site 12345 has been rejected.

Performer EDI PIN
As a performer the EDI PIN request relates to your personal EDI PIN number. As such, the page
appearance is slightly less complex [Figure 27].
Figure 27: performer EDI PIN view
Clicking on the Request new EDI PIN button will redirect you to the confirm password page. Once your
credentials have been verified the request will be logged [Figure 28]. You will receive a response for
the request via email within 24 hours, the PIN number will not be held within the email this will be
visible within the portal.

USER MANAGEMENT
It is possible for Providers to create additional user accounts and assign privileges and restrictions for
the administration of various tasks within the portal. Providers can create and manage their
administrator-users on the User management page.
11.1
Create an Administrator
The first time you navigate to the View and maintain user’s page it will look like Figure 31 below. Once
some administrator users have been created, we’ll see a bit more activity.
Figure 31: manage users first view
Let’s create our first one by clicking on the Create new user button. This will start the user creation
process by requesting the following mandatory user details:
New user email address
o
Date: 21/7/12
This is the email address that the portal will use to communicate with your
admin-user. Be sure to use the correct address as they will need to activate
their account (refer to section 2 Initial Steps for more information about the
activation process) via the email address entered here. The email address
should be unique. Duplicate email addresses will not be accepted by the
system.
26
Dental portal guidance manual v.1
New user forename
New user surname
New user telephone number
Figure 32: create admin-user - new details
Clicking on the Next button when done will check the details entered for any errors (e.g. the email
address is not valid) and then progress to the next section – Assigning actions and contracts/providers
to the user [Figure 33].
Check the appropriate box according to which contract(s) you would like your admin-user to be able to
administrate on your behalf, then click the Next button to proceed when done.
Figure 33: create admin-user - assign or restrict contracts
On subsequent visits to the admin-user creation process, you will see the screen below [Figure 34]
prior to the Assign contracts view. This provides you with the facility to simply assign contract/provider
rights to the new user based on the privileges of a user created previously.
Selecting a user and then clicking on the Copy user button will assign the same contract/provider level
privileges to the new admin-user as for the selected user.
Clicking on the Don’t copy button will skip the assignment and take you to the Assign contracts page
[Figure 33] for manual selection.
Date: 21/7/12

Dental portal guidance manual v.1
Figure 34: optional create admin-user step – assign actions based on another user
Once contracts and/or providers have been assigned, you may proceed to select which actions will be
available to your new admin-user [Figure 35]. Check or uncheck the areas of the portal you wish to
give the admin-user access to.
Note: The Manage Bank Details area requires access to Contracts also, since access to the Manage
Bank Details area is via the Contracts pages. You must enable both Contracts and Manage Bank
Details actions together, or neither.
Once done, click the Next button to proceed.
Figure 35: create admin-user - assign or restrict available actions
Having given your admin-user some credentials, access to contracts, providers and actions – we’re
done! A summary of your choices is displayed for you to confirm [Figure 36]. Click on the Finish button
if you’re happy. Otherwise, click Back through the admin-user creation pages and modify as required.

Manage Administrator Users
Once some admin-users have been created, we need to manage them. This can be done via the user
management screens. Clicking on the User management link opens up the View and maintain users
summary page with a list of all our admin-users [Figure 38].
We can see there are two admin-users listed below. One with an active account (i.e. they have
received their activation link and used it to activate and login to their user account) and one non-active
user [Account status column]. We can examine these users more closely by clicking on the Manage
user link and thereby opening the User details view [Figure 39].
Clicking on the admin-user email address instead of the Manage user link will open up the User details
view in non-editable mode. Clicking on the Edit button at the bottom of the page will enable you to
make changes where required.
Note: The user details view will open by default if you have only one user (there is no list to display).
Clicking on the Edit button enables changes to be made.
