A Google-Like Feature In Oracle Argus Safety



When evaluating Oracle Argus Safety for the reporting and management of adverse events or product complaints, one thing is clear to me; a company can save a tremendous amount of time by leveraging Argus’ innate functionality to assist in the tedious tasks around case entry. In the next few blog posts, we will look at several of these features. 

I’m a big Google fan, so this feature I’m highlighting shouldn’t come as a surprise: Autocomplete. Or Type ahead. Call it what you want – it does the same thing.

No matter where you are in the Argus system, you can type a letter in a field and, if it meets the criteria of a drop down menu item, then a related list of values will automatically appear for you to choose from. The screenshot below shows you how this works.



As you would expect, such a feature can:

  • Save you time by typing less
  • Provide suggestions for terms that are commonly misspelled

For our next Argus Safety feature-related post, we’ll discuss how simple it is to go back to previously accessed adverse event cases in Argus Safety. To read past posts in this series, click here.
