Create a Time Block (Non-Patient Appointment)
This is helpful when there is an office meeting, lunch, vacation, or other non-patient appointments. This is also helpful when trying to block off time for a provider when they do not want to have any patients scheduled.
- Click on an open time slot to schedule an appointment, just as you would with a patient appointment.
- Skip the Patient Quick Search, and type the name of the appointment in the What field.
- In the Type field, choose Other.
- Add Notes, as needed, then click Save.
Important: Scheduling repeating time blocks over multiple months can cause unforeseen issues especially if you edit or delete one of the blocks. Therefore, we recommend 3-4 month blocks but no longer than a 12-month series. If you need to edit or delete a block within a recurring series, end the series with that block and begin a new series.
