    Additional Functionality for Integrations

    Weave’s Digital Forms product is available to all Weave customers, making it easier than ever to collect important customer information.

    This product also integrates with certain Practice Management Softwares for automated writeback functionality. Writebacks allow Weave to transfer the information your customers fill out in your form directly to your Practice Management Software.

    Does my Practice Management Software integrate with Digital Forms?

    Weave’s Digital Forms product currently integrates with the following Practice Management Softwares:

    • Open Dental
    • Dentrix (Beta)
    • Eaglesoft

    The information Weave can transfer to your Practice Management Software is dependent on which software you use.

    What information writes back to my management system?

    When a customer fills out one of your forms, certain information will record to your Practice Management Software, updating the customer’s record. 

    The chart below illustrates which information is transferred to your Practice Management Software from Weave:

    5. Select a Primary Field or Element and drag and drop into the forms builder window

    6. Add a Field Label. This is the title of the field, and should be either a description or a question.

    7. Add a Field Name. This is the unique identifier of the field. 

    Tip: Field Names cannot contain any spaces. Best practice is to do description_function. For example, a Customer Signature field would have the field name of customer_signature. 

    Primary Fields already have a Field Name populated and cannot be edited. You only need to come up with a Field Name for customizable Elements. 

    8. Toggle on or off Required to make this field required as desired
