Schedule Analyzer Forensic Find P3 Schedules
helps you locate, research, and catalogue your P3 schedules. This is a must for every Claims Analyst or Program Manager trying to maintain a library of schedules.
STEP 1 is to look for your P3 schedules. Tell the program which disk drive to inventory and then just go! After a short wait, you will see something like the example shown here.
STEP 2 is to select a directory displayed on the right and research the general overview for each schedule in that directory. The results may be printed or saved to a text file. After a longer wait, you will see something like the example shown here.
STEP 3 is to have the program make a catalogue of detailed summaries of the various issues in each schedule in the selected directory. You may skip Step 2 and go directly from Step 1 to Step 3, if you desire. It can take several minutes before the summaries are completed and saved to an Excel spreadsheet. Once complete, your spreadsheet will look something like the example shown here.
