Setting Up and Using Multiple Locations

Add multiple locations to your Power Diary account and assign appointments easily.

You can add multiple locations to your Power Diary account for free. There is no limit to the number of locations you can add. Individual appointments can then be assigned to these locations, or you can link the location to an availability so that all new appointments entered into the available times are automatically assigned to a selected location.

The list of availabilities will have a note of their locations for your reference. 

Changing the Default Location for Unavailable Times for an Individual Practitioner

By default, any appointment added into an unavailable time will be linked to the default location selected for the practitioner. Only use the following if you would like to change the default location for unavailable time for a particular practitioner to something different.

1. Go to  Settings → Practitioners.
2. Click on the practitioner's name.

3. Navigate to ' Settings' on the left-hand side menu.

4. Change the 'Default Location for Unavailable Times' to your desired location.

5. Click  Save.

All new appointments entered in this calendar in times that are not available will now be assigned to the Default Location selected.

Hint 💡

Unavailable times will be shown as the default grey colour in the calendar. These are times that have not been made available for the practitioner.
