Our office recently did the update of 8.1.0 and we were really disappointed. We us being a multi office and a multi doctor practice, the new appointment page enhancements DID NOT work for us. Some things we didn't like are the fact that the appointment book toggle button has been removed from the toolbar. Our office has 3 different books so now we have to click the arrow button 3 times to get to the book we want where as before we only had to click once. The other thing is the floating calendar, since there isn't a designated spot for it anymore you have to move it when you go to a new book. The other issue is the flashing red line. I don't see any useful purpose and should be removed or at least an option that can be added or deleted. If any one else on this version has any suggestions please respond back. Bonnie H
Good afternoon contactclayton,
Thank you for sharing your experience with the update. I'm sorry it didn't meet the needs of the practice.
I spoke with another practice on Friday experiencing the same issue getting back to the previously viewed book. I believe this is something we can rectify easily and am aiming to do so in the next release.
If time permits in the development cycle I hope to address the other two issues you're experiencing. I can't promise they will make it into version 9, but I'm hopeful. As we make progress and make changes I'll post them to this site.
Most of our employees have stated that they like the red line (although I still haven't figured out why it flashes sometimes and not other times, but small potatoes). But I fully agree that being able to customize features within the software to fit your practice's needs is extremely beneficial.
