How do I add an Appointment Status?

To add a new Appointment Status:

Go to Settings -> Scheduling and click on the Appointment Statuses tab:

Click the Create New Appointment Status button:

Give the Appointment Status a name

Select a colour from the drop down

State if this is the Default status (the default status given when Appointments are booked) - there can only be one default status

State if it means the patient is attending

State if it means the patient has arrived for an appointment (as you can receive a notification linked to this)

Click Save 

Top tip - If you are setting up an appointment status to use alongside any appointment in the diary which means you are busy and unavailable for any other bookings (either client or non-client appointments), please set "Does it mean the patient is attending" to Yes. This tells WriteUpp that you are not available and to not offer the space in an appointment search either within WriteUpp or online booking.
