How do I handle irregular breaks?

The breaks feature enables you to specify a standard break, that occurs at the same time every day, for example lunch.

However, if you take breaks at different times each day, you should:

Create an Appointment Type called "Break" or something similar, making sure to specify that it is a Non-patient appointment type
For each day, at the time of your break, insert an appointment using this Appointment Type to block out the time
If your breaks are changeable during the week, but the same each week, you could set these breaks up as recurring, weekly appointments
