The Appointment Scheduler can display in several Viewing Modes:


Day View


The Day View displays a single day's appointments. This view leaves lots of room to work with appointments, but doesn't allow dragging appointments to another day.




To rearrange the day's appointments, grab the appointment on the far left side (the cursor will change to a arrowed-cross) and drag it to the new location.



You can also right-click an appointment and cut/copy/paste the appointment.


Week View


The week view is the typical view used by most offices. It allows a good overview of the day's appointments with the ability to drag/move appointments between days.




Work Week

The work week consists of the days you selected in the Options screen as your work days (typically Monday-Friday, or Tuesday-Saturday).




Full Week

Shows all seven days of the week, irrespective of the default work days you have set. This is useful if you schedule patients on a weekend very rarely.




Multicolumn Mode

Converts from the 7 day work week column view to a spread view. The checkbox has no effect in 5 day view.




When in this view, there are no displayed timeline tickmarks and although you can double click to create an appointment you must manually adjust the appointment times.



Month View



Displays a full 30-day view with all appointments condensed to allow a general overview of the month. Not recommended for creating appointments; as a matter of fact by double-clicking a day while in Month View you will switch automatically to Day View. Right-clicking in Day, Week or Month View will allow you to create or modify appointments.
