Bug Fixes:

  • Recommendations crash when selecting a particular list item

Auto create appointment types for Front Desk accounts

Previously appointments would not be synced unless an Appointment Type was set up. This lead to a substantial number of missing appointments if this setup step was not complete.

Now Instinctive Notes will automatically set up all unknown Appointment Types from Front Desk, and give them a random colour so that they show up in a Practitioners appointment list correctly.

For Front Desk accounts, Appointment type colours can be changed by and Admin by going to “Settings >> Appointment Types”.

Process delayed appointment cancellations

Appointment cancellations were not being processed if the cancellation was made more than two days after the appointment was due to occur. This would mean that appointments could remain in the “No Note” list of a practitioner when they should be removed.

Now there is a months grace on appointment cancellations and the Practitioners “No Note” list will be shorter as a result.
