  1. Custom Appointment Statuses

    We would like the ability to add custom statuses and filters for those statuses. Some of what we'd like to be able to add are:
    Filling out Papers
    In Triage
    Ready for Doctor

    These would help our doctors understand where patients currently reside.

  2. Scheduler Template Masking

    My schedule varies day to day, so my staff needs to know when and where to schedule patients. They need to know when to schedule a new patient, say for an hour visit, vs a return patient, say for 15 minutes. They also need to know when slots are taken or when they can overbook. I desperately need a schedule template that shows open slots for different types of patients for different amounts of time.

  3. Display Blocked Time on DAY tab of Scheduler

    All scheduled Items (including blocked time) should show on the daily appointment list (DAY tab) as well, so that I don't have to flip back and forth between daily and weekly schedule.

  4. Enhancements for Recurring Appointments

    We would like to have options for different intervals in repeating appointments that makes scheduling further out much easier. Some examples: weekly, biweekly, monthly

  5. Customized Blocked Time Scheduling Warnings

    When scheduling appointments, currently it is possible to schedule appointments during times block out for lunch and also during time the practice is closed. We would like to be warned when scheduling appointments when the providers are not available so we don't mistakenly create an appointment that has to be rescheduled later.

  6. Appointment Notes

    We would like to be able to store a comment for each appointment. We would use this for tracking things that pertain to billing or patient needs.

  7. Maintain Day in Scheduler

    When I click on user and select the desired person and then click on the calendar icon to select the desired date, it would be nice if both of them were remembered when moving to and from different patients. Currently, only the user is remembered and the date is lost, having to go to the calendar icon again and re-selecting it.

    Great news! As of 7/31/2015, we have resolved this issue fully. Thank you for your patience.

  8. Restrict Scheduler View to Office Hours

    We would like to be able to set the Daily calendar so we only see office hours. Anything beyond office hours should not even show up on the calendar.

  9. Remember my place in schedule or chart list

    Currently, if I'm documenting from the Chart view, and I choose the 25th of the 30 encounters (e.g., my 4pm appointment) on my schedule, when I close that patient's chart I'm returned to the top of the Chart list, i.e., the 8am patients. I have to scroll down to find where I was in the list. For every patient.

    PF should return me to the Chart window scrolled down to the 4pm point on my schedule, not reset to 8am.

    This is even worse using the Schedule view currently. If I go back two weeks because I'm charting encounters two…

  10. Link Appointment Types to Encounter Types

    We have specific appointment types: physicals, lab draws, urgent visits, routine follow ups. We can create those specific appointment types in the schedule.

    However, when an encounter is generated based on that appointment, we would like for the "encounter type" to be reflective of the appointment type. For example, if we make an appointment for a lab draw, we would like the encounter to be "lab draw".

  11. Edit Recurring Appointments

    It would be helpful if we could edit the recurring appointments once they are set. For example, changing the number of sessions to repeat, instead of having to delete the appointment to recreate it.

  12. Schedule masks for individual providers, not just the practice

    Scheduling templates for individual providers, not the entire practice. Another option would be to add "placeholders" that are visually different that the appointments so schedulers can easily see when appointments are available for each provider.

    Blocking schedules for providers not here renders the weekly schedule inoperable from a visual standpoint.

  13. Offline Backup of Schedule

    We would like the ability to backup schedule just in case something happens to the cloud for any length of time. I understand you can print them and save in a box somewhere, but why not just be able to back up each months schedule in case of emergency?

  15. Customize Scheduler View Columns

    Is there an option to streamline the weekly view so that all the patient information is visible (i.e. get rid of the PN icon (takes up a whole line space), not display middle name (often hides last name), and make the notes section visible without having to click and open the appt?

  16. Stay at same time in calendar after editing an appoinment

    Every time I edit a patient's appointment, after saving it, it jumps down to the very end of the day. If it's a 9am patient, I have to scroll all the way back up after saving to see who is next in at 9:15. Please lock the time being viewed and prevent the scroll from occurring.

  18. Customize Providers for Scheduling Dropdown

    When scheduling a patient, all PF users are listed as "providers" in the dropdown list. I have only one billing provider, the other users are support staff and do not require schedules for the office. If I could customize the list of providers that are in the dropdown when scheduling appointments, it would save two clicks.

  19. Track Time Patient Entered Room and Time Patient Left Room

    It would be very helpful if in the Status Field, the time the patient entered the room, as well as the time they left the room was tracked
    (Start and Stop times).
