Can I be notified when a patient has arrived for an appointment?

Yes, a patient arriving for an appointment is one of the events which you can choose to receive a notification about.  

To receive the notification you'll need to:

  • Set up an Appointment Status called Arrived (You'll only need to do this if you signed up before 02/10/18)
  • Choose how you'd like to be notified 

To set up an Arrived Status

1. Go to Settings -> Scheduling, scroll to the Appointment Statuses section and select Create New Appointment Status:
