You can configure automated notifications to alert practitioners about their appointments via an email or text message. You can configure the following appointment notifications:
Practitioners receive a notification when a patient requests an appointment through the e-booking process or the requested status is applied internally.
Practitioners receive a notification when an appointment status is confirmed. This includes booking internally and when a requested appointment is confirmed.
Practitioners receive a notification any time an appointment is changed. Specifically, when the date and/or time of the appointment are changed.
Practitioners receive a notification when an appointment is cancelled. This includes deleting or removing an appointment internally, or a patient cancelling the appointment from their end.
Practitioners receive a notification when an appointment has the status booked.
📌 Note: We recommend using email notifications. Use text messages only for unique cases. For more information, see SMS (Text) Overage Fees Update.
