Creating New Appointments

You may create new appointments by using one of the following options:

  • From the Calendar - The most common method of creating a new appointment is directly from the Calendar. Double-clicking on an empty time slot will launch the Scheduling Wizard. The wizard will walk you through the scheduling process for either a new or existing client. Note: The Scheduling Wizard CANNOT be disabled through User Preferences. If you want to create a simple, unlinked appointment on the calendar, simply click once on an empty time slot and start typing. Press Enter when done and then resize the appointment box to change its start and end times.
  • From the Hubs - From any hub, select Appointment/Session in the New group of the ribbon. This will launch the Scheduling Wizard which will walk you through the scheduling process for either a new or existing client. Note: The Scheduling Wizard CANNOT be disabled through User Preferences.
  • From a Client - Another method of creating a new appointment is directly from a client record. In the New group of the ribbon, click New Appointment to open a new appointment record. Enter the appointment information and save.

  • From a Session - You can also create a new appointment directly from a session record. In the New group of the ribbon, click New Appointment to open a new appointment record. Enter the appointment information and save.

For a step-by-step description of scheduling appointments with the Scheduling Wizard see Creating a Linked Appointment or Creating an Unlinked Appointment.
