Editing Your Diary Display Preferences
In Power Diary, every individual person in your health clinic can have their own diary. The diary includes the calendar in which you can make appointments, create invoices and do much more.
In this article, we’ll show you how to customize your diary and calendar in Power Diary.
First things first. To customize your Power Diary calendar, go to SETUP → Configuration → Calendar Display. Here, you’ll find all the settings for customizing your Power Diary calendar and diary.
The Calendar Display page is divided into two parts. On the left side, you’ll find the settings with which you can make changes to your calendar’s start and end time.
Here are the settings:
Set The Calendar Start Time And End Time
The very first settings you can change is the Calendar Start Time - and below that, the Calendar End Time. With these two settings, you can change the time period that shows up on your Power Diary calendar.
For example, in the image above, the start time is 8 A.M and the end time is 5 P.M.
Customize The Calendar Block
Each block on the Power Diary calendar represents a time period. By default, a block represents 30 minutes. Meaning if you want to add a one-hour appointment to your calendar, you will select two blocks.
To change the block settings, you have two options:
- Minutes Per Calendar Block: This option lets you change the time period a block represents. You can have a block that represents as little as 5 minutes or as long as 60 minutes.
- Calendar Time Block Size: This option simply lets you change the size of the block. You can make the blocks on your calendar look small or large depending on your preferences.
Customize The Functionality of Your Calendar
Power Diary lets you change certain aspects of how your calendar looks and behaves. Some other changes you can make are:
- Show Client Accounts on Diary: After enabling this option, Power Diary will show a red dollar sign on those client appointments who have a pending invoice which they are yet to pay.
- Client Name on A Separate Line: When you create an appointment on the Power Diary calendar, it shows the client name, the date and time of the appointment and other information. Enabling this option will separate the client name on another line from the rest of the info.
- Show Calendar Names As Drop-Down List: By default, Power Diary shows the diaries of all your clinicians in multiple tabs above your calendar. By enabling this option, the diaries will be displayed in a drop-down list instead of tabs.
- Confirm Appointment Moves: If you accidentally drag appointments and reschedule them, this option can come in handy. If you turn it on, you’ll get a confirmation popup anytime you reschedule an appointment.
Once you’ve made the desired changes to your calendar, click on the Save Changes button.
