Custom Calendar Colours & Highlights

You can add your own custom colours to use for your appointments on the calendar. You can give these colours meaningful names such as 'Private Patients' or 'Child Patients' etc so your staff can easily choose the correct colour to use. You can also change the colour of the built in appointment types such as:

  • Standard appointments
  • Patient visits
  • Online bookings which have not been matched to a patient
You can also change the colour of appointment highlights. Highlight colours appear on the left hand side of the appointment and can inform you of things like:

  • Money owing on the account
  • Notes not created for the visit

As a general guide it is recommended to use light or pastal shades for your appointments and more vivid colours for the highlights so they stand out.
