If I had to copy & paste my IM to an email...

Posted By: MT on 2007-11-07
In Reply to: Company-provided computer does not have printer with it. - Instant messaging for communication

...because I needed a conversation documented, I would do it.  I would find a way.  Even if I had to get a disposable camera and take a couple of darn pictures of the computer with the IM on it.  LOL!  

By the way, what happens if you doin't respond to the IM?  Are you an employee with the co?  No co. would make me do IM, but that's me.  What is the co. so concerned about that they don't want something documented in email???

Copy and Paste....

I have a few of my own standards in MS Word that I will copy and paste into Meditech, but I find the tabs do not translate over to Meditech. Do you have this problem as well? It is aggravating because I have to fix these when I go back to the Meditech screen

thanks for the copy and paste--sm
but latest and related are not the same thing. all I am seeing are posts that were placed after mine and nothing in relation to the original post questioning the company. sorry again.
copy/paste is against the rules.. we were
from the onset to NEVER EVER copy and paste. If you are doing this you should stop it soon before they figure it out and you get in trouble.
Should I attach or copy and paste
the questionnaire and resume into an email when sending them back to Webmedx? No preference was given.
could you quickly copy and paste your document into another? then
you could just keep adding on the lines in each document to your own master document for the day. Then you would have a line count for the day. I bet you could write a macro to do this.
but that still takes time to copy/paste

This company prob charges their client the same rate for the entire report; everyone is feeling the crunch!  So, let's hit the MT's pocket; I'd pass on companies like that.

Any company will leave you alone if you do your work, so that's not a plus!  

Put them in auto-correct - copy and paste. Quick and easy! nm
I googled labor board. Copy/paste in address bar
May have to key in either your state or company state not sure which or maybe both.

No special software. Just copy and paste the report you typed to Microsoft Word on your
computer. Under the Tools menu, select Word Count. Characters are listed with or without spaces. Take the total of either and divide by 65 to get your line count. Then match that with what your company is giving you for a line count.

If you don't have Microsoft Word, then you can download a free trial of Abacus line counting software from the internet.
They email everyone a copy of the newsletter. Email and ask
and they will email you one if you haven't been receiving it.
you get a form to put in your name, email, and paste your resume. MTSpot sends it to the recipient

Neither. You can copy into Word but cannot copy back into Emdat.


Did anyone ever tell you why no cut/paste? I always want to know why. sm
But I'm not going to be able to continue working for them, since they just don't have enough work during the time I have available, so it won't be a problem. 
I am trying to paste...

My resume in the Transtech application form.  I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do that? 




Cut & Paste why?
I have been curious about this for a while.  Why do companies need us to cut and paste our resumes into an email rather than attaching them.  9 out of 10 companies on MTjobs request this and go so far as to say they will DELETE emails with attachments.  Anyone know or have a guess?
Info is obviously a cut and paste.
Anyone could do it. Why would OSi stoop so low?
going to cut and paste your post
because everything you have said is so very, very true.  I don't have 31 years of experience - but I do have 25 years of transcription/secretarial experience and 12 years of MT - so I have a little bit of an idea what I am doing - and you are so right - if you cannot at least bring in $100 a day - why bother?  I am at that point too.  I am doing SR for 4.5 cpl now - but have something else in the works - it is my very last straw.... so not giving up quite yet.  I am so very, very sorry for what you have gone through - know you are not alone - not sure what can be done - but you are not the only one in this boat!!
I posted a cut and paste of what sm
they sent me and it clearly states that you are hired as an SC and then are offered SE status.  That's pretty clear.  My question is why would they hire you as SC status, tell you when to work and then offer you SE status?  Pretty fishy.  I understand you don't like the comment I made about being pimped out but I don't know what else to call it when folks accept this practice of working as an SC being told what and when, paying double taxes and putting up with this stuff.  your just handing your hard-earned money over!
I use Meditech and don't cut and paste
and it's fine for me.....we use Word inside Meditech so I have all my macros and stuff.
resume cut/paste
This might help you out :)
Can't bring up the article - could you cut and paste - sm
it so that we could read it??
When you paste a resume on the Job Seekers
or does it print correctly on the recruiter's side? 
Just paste it and let it go. They're looking for content, not format, when ....sm
...the resume is sent via a web contact form. If you are a good MT with good qualifications, they won't care how it's set up, but do make sure words are spelled correctly. That's a huge bugaboo when I read resumes.
Highlight all the text you want to paste and right click
your mouse.   You should get a list of options, one of which is copy.  Select copy.  Go to the page you want to paste your resume and right click your mouse again.  Again you will have options, one of which should be paste.  Click paste and there is it.    If you right click the second time and you don't get paste, go back through the above steps again and copy again and then try paste.  
Cut & paste. They expected us to type in Word and

You will not be able to copy those from a MQ
computer. Believe me, I tried EVERYTHING! My husband is a computer whiz and said they have some kind of lock on their system that you cannot copy or transfer to another computer, sorry, but like me, you'll just have to redo your expander, I know it's crap, but you'll make yourself crazy trying to copy it, cause it just won't happen.
copy typing
What exactly is copy typing? Just curious. Thanks
Did you ask for a copy of the test?
Just curious.
Look at the copy of the fraudulent
resignations email that you received:

WHAT is written in From:......?

WHAT is written in
TO:..... ?

Doesn't this give you a clue?

Can't you use this as evidence that it is a fraudulent email, NOT sent by you???
copy and past into address bar. nm
Very interesting. I am going to copy this and save it. nm
I'd ask to see copy of occup or county...nm

I'd like to see a copy of a letter sent to clients ...
The letter would explain to the client/doctors that MTs work from homes all over the country and we may not know the names of streets, towns, landmarks in their communities. The letter would explain how docs and MTs could both save time if the doc would move his/her lips when speaking, and would speak at a reasonable volume and pace -- not super-fast, and not stop and go while shuffling papers and talking on cell phones. The letter would describe (in a sweet, informative way, of course) that MTs are real human beings and that dictation is not transcribed by magical machines on the other end of the phone line. And then, I'd like to hear all the docs say, Thank you at the end of their dictations and say, If there's anything that I can do to improve my dictation technique, please let me know, and actually mean it!
Maybe they can supply you with the right copy of word.
Do you have a copy of the BOS to follow for format, etc.? nm
Copy Meditech to PC Shorthand (sm)
I am new to Meditech.  Could someone please tell me how to copy, for example, and whole paragraph such as physical exam into PC Shorthand?  Thanks very much!!!

$25-$45 an hour or per project.  It isn't steady but it pays for the extras! 
and labor board guidelines regarding employment of independent contractors and the difference between IC and employment status.  They cannot have it both ways...have their cake and eat it, too.  They don't want to pay taxes, Soc Sec,  and benefits for MTs.....but they still want the same control over the MT.  Same mentality of most MTSO's....insulting our common sense & intelligence bec. they've soooooooo smart and we're are, collectively, soooooooo dumb!                            
I am currently using it. I type in MSWord, copy
and paste in Meditech. One must be very careful to watch the Meditech screen to be sure you are pasting the right report. I especially like doing it this way because my Expander works with Word, and if for some reason the internet connection is lost, I do not lose my report but just re-paste when connected again.

I hate Meditech..there is too much to be entered before you ever get to the text screen, all of which we are not paid for. It demands a high rate per line. Otherwise, you work yourself to death and face applying for food stamps if the Meditech account is the only one you are transcribing. I would say 15 cpl is a minimum to get to break even...to break even!
forward a copy to the big boss
I would request a copy of the test

to review and learn from.  I'm not saying that you did make any mistakes, but it would be easier to think that if the company is not willing to provide you with that.  I would definitely want a copy for my own knowledge.

actually perfect copy is correct.
copy of fraud resignation
I have a screen shot copy of the fraudulent resignation that the team leader took the initiative to email to me.  I don't have a copy of the original fraudulent resignation email that was sent to the account manager, but I sure wish I had, as I learned through Yahoo Fraud Division the following.  For instance, I email a person, not forwarded, just they receive my original email.  If you go to the very bottom of that email, in the right lower corner, click on Full Headers.  Now go back up to the top of the email and what do you see....You will now see the IP address.  That IP address tells a lot about the sender.  Hmmm, do you think All Type would insist ***** do this since she is the one who received the fraudulent resignation?  Would save a lot of legal headaches.  I think I shall request that, but something tells me I will not receive a response.     
DRC did. Printed out a copy of the test and took it over the phone w/the
If there is anyone higher up, send them a copy with a complaint.
If the person who sent it is the last buck in that company, send a reply along with the original message telling them to cease an desist harassing you and that if anything else like that happens again you will be taking appropriate action to ensure it will not happen again. Print out/save your copies. Then, call the office and tell them the same either to their face or the next person in line. Tell them you are making a note of the call, who you talked to, what was said and why. Do not partake in any harassment in return, do not sink to their level. Plainly tell them to stop or steps will be taken. Doesn't really matter to anyone here what was said or why. If you feel you are being harassed you need to handle the situation calmly and promptly.

Good luck.
I had the same thing happen and I asked for a copy
of the test and was told they couldn't mail it to me.  Which makes no sense at all since the document was in Word and all they had to do was Email me the corrected version. 
also turn them into perfect copy (s/b copies) lol
no them is plural - them to copies ; Had he said it - then turn it to copy.
P.S. - If your company has filed form SS-8 ask for a copy.
If they won't give it to you, see if you can get it from the IRS; I believe you can.

And, of course you can still file your own SS-8 even if the company has filed it. I'm not saying an MTSO would LIE on the form they file, but anyone can make a MISTAKE...
