Making and Editing Appointments

The Different Appointment Types are:

Client Appointment (Default):

Sets a standard appointment for a new or existing client.

Personal Appointment:

This blocks out time in the diary for personal use and is not related to a client, e.g. Lunch, Meeting etc.

Group Appointment:

This appointment type allows you to create a group and add multiple clients into this group.

Creating a New Client Appointment

  1. Click on the time in the diary that you would like to book. (HINT: You can click and drag a time period in the diary to book a longer appointment)
  2. A "New Appointment" panel will appear on the right of the screen and the selection will default to "Client appointment". If the Appointment is for an existing client: Start typing the clients name in the Client Name field. A dropdown list of existing clients will appear. Select the name from the dropdown list. If the appointment is for a new client: Click 'Add a new client' and enter the client's name and details. If the appointment is for a client you have recently selected: If you have recently been into a clients appointment or details page the client will appear under 'Select a recent client..' to allow you to quickly select them to create a new appointment.
  3. Add any comments to "Appointment Notes" if applicable e.g. "May be 5mins late."
  4. Under "Appointment Details" you can select the service type that you will be providing and change the service location. (This is optional. You can skip this step.)
  5. Click "Save" and your appointment will be created and will be visible in the diary.

Editing an Appointment

  1. Click on the appointment you wish to edit.
  2. The appointment panel will appear on the right side of the screen. Edit the appointment details as required.
  3. Click "Save".

Moving an Appointment

There are two ways to move existing appointments: (1) Clicking and dragging; or (2) Editing the date or start and finishing time.

(HINT: If a client wishes to cancel the appointment and remake a new one it is best to "Cancel" or "Re-schedule" the existing appointment in the diary, and then create a new one at the desired time. This ensures you have a complete record of the client's history.)

  1. Hover your mouse over the coloured bar on the left side of the appointment you wish to move. (A four direction arrow will appear.)
  2. Click, drag and drop the appointment to the desired time, date or diary. The appointment can be dragged to any diary space visible on the page.
  3. The appointment will automatically be saved in the new location.

Method 2: Editing the Date or Starting and Finishing Time

  1. Click the appointment you wish to move.
  2. The appointment panel will appear on the right side of the screen. Change the Date and Time as required.
