Comments

This has been a nightmare for our office. I was just told that this must be done on the server too. We updated with a rep on 01/04/2023 and had to speak to three different people. They never mentioned this. It has been pulling the wrong fees since then. I called back with IT to get them in the server and the rep told me I was wrong and that "according to an hour ago that's not why you called" He basically called me a liar. He's also the rep that didn't do it correctly on 01/04/2023. I'm so over this. Zero help from support. We will be looking for a new practice management system. So disappointed.  @paula1
