This section contains several tabs that allow several options that can assist you with your funeral requirements.
Wow! A Quick way to copy funeral details
The Funeral Details – Clipboard Reference is a quick way to copy the various details of the deceased to be then ‘Pasted’ into another program.
The buttons are labelled with the deceased’s data.
Clicking a button will ‘Copy’ that data to your computer’s clipboard so that you can then ‘Paste’ that data into another program.
All the main details of the deceased are available.
Notice that if FreeDAM contains the newspaper notices then those too are available to be copied at a click of a button.
The Service Details are also available.
Funeral Day Reminders
A list of items that are important to take to a funeral are able to be listed and a report can be printed out to put with the hearse so nothing is forgotten.
You are able to type directly into the yellow field or quickly add items from the pink list via a double click.
The reminders report appears like this.
