How do I add a patient to the waiting list?

WriteUpp provides you with the ability to add patients to a pre-defined 'Waiting List', along with the ability to create and manage your own custom lists.  

You can edit the name and description of the pre-defined list, should you wish to, by going to Settings -> More -> Lists.

Patients can be added to the Waiting List in two places:

On the Patient tab of the Patient Summary
Via the Active Patient button

On the Patient tab of the Patient Summary, click on Edit Details to open the record in the editable state:

 Scroll to the Lists section:

Check the box for Waiting List and then Save Changes:

The patient tab in its non-editable state will then be updated to show that the patient is on the Waiting List:

If you only have one list set up,  you'll see a shortcut to add the patient directly to the Waiting List:

Click this link to add the patient to the waiting list and you'll then be taken to the list with the patient added:

If you have multiple lists set up, you'll see an Add to Lists shortcut:

Clicking on this link will open a page displaying all of the lists set up.  From here you'll be able to add the patient to the Waiting List:
