Color Coding for Block Times
Please bring back color coding for block times to the new EHR. Since PF doesn't allow scheduling at multiple offices, we use this to distinguish when each provider will be at which office location and prevent our patients from scheduling time slots incorrectly through Patient Fusion.
We desperately need this. If we are unable to color code them at least have it reflect the color of the person who made it as it used to.
Dr. Jacob B. Goldstein commented
We stopped using Block Time specifically for this reason, but also since it doesn't print out on the day's schedule. (makes no sense) We made the doctor a patient and set up a "Dr. Out" appointment type. Now all the "blocked time" is now an appointment and can be color coded and printed.
Yes we need color coordinated blocks!
Yes! This has become a huge problem for our practice without the color coded block scheduling. We need this desperately!
In the old PF, each user was assigned a color and when each user blocked a particular time, the block was color coded on scheduled based on the user. With the new PF, all blocked times are in grey.
We have multiple offices. The colored block times are our only method to understand the provider and office location that s/he is holding hours in.

The old version of PF blocked times for doctors with the assigned color that is used for their patient appointments. This makes scheduling easier when you have several providers as it enables you to know who is blocked out at a glance when scheduling. Currently the color is grey for everyone which makes it difficult to know who is scheduled out for that day or hour. Hope this helped explain our situation and request for change back to the original settings.
