This blog post describes how to enter a default work schedule for each day of the week. Once a schedule is entered, the appointment times will automatically be added when you choose a day in the calendar.
Follow the steps below to setup your default work schedule.
- Choose Practitioner from the Setup Menu.
- Click the check box next to the days you see patients. The first and last visit times will automatically be set to 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. The interval between sessions is set to 60 minutes.
- Change the times and interval to reflect your actual schedule. As an example, if you start at 10:00 AM, type 10a and press the tab key on the keyboard. If your last visit is at 4:30 PM, type 4:30p and press tab.
- Select the business holidays you observe to keep a schedule from being created on these days.
In the Appointments Email Text area, enter the message you want to use for patient appointment email reminders. Sending appointment reminders will be discussed in a future tutorial email.
