I agree, especially since patient's are getting duplicate patient notes and encounters created for one visit each day.
Hi everyone – As of 1/19/2017, we have introduced a new schedule setting to all practices that allows administrators to determine if encounters will be auto-generated for appointments marked as cancelled or no-show.
You can read more about schedule settings here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/482832
We have also introduced a new Appointment Report that allows practices to review and filter appointments by facility, status, provider, and date, making it easier to track cancellations, no shows, and other scheduling details.

Thanks for helping make the Practice Fusion EHR better for everyone. If you are passionate about this idea, remember you can let your colleagues know you support it by clicking the ‘Vote’ button.
The ideas with the most supporters are constantly being considered for addition to our roadmap in the future.
The ability to delete a duplicate encounter would be very helpful, right now ever appointment each doctor has is creating two separate notes in each patient's chart but is only on the schedule one time.
As of 12/14/2015, you can now mark a patient’s appointment as confirmed on the scheduler.
There is a great knowledge base article that explains this here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/773469-how-do-i-update-an-appointment-s-confirmation-stat
It would be most helpful if there was a box that we could manually check if a patient confirms an appointment over the phone with us in the office and if it can be automatically checked if the patient confirms via PF or responding to email or text message.
