CREATING A NEW APPOINTMENT
Within the calendar, select the date and time of the appointment, right-click and select NEW SAL.
Next, select the client you are scheduling and the billing code. The duration will auto-populate according to the start and end time.
If your agency is using Divisions, Locations, or Rooms apply those here.
If this appointment is for a different user, select that user from the User Name drop-down. Click Save.
If the appointment you are creating is a duplicate for a client, PIMSY will let you know:
To print a schedule for a user's appointments: go to the My Sal Calendar and Filter by User (select ***NA*** to view all).
For example, select all users for a view of appointments the next day. Change to half hour intervals and Exit.
Go to Reports > Service Activity Log (Multiple Users) and filter for the desired user and for the service date (next day). Click OK.
Click the Export button to save the selected calendar appointments in a MS Excel spreadsheet. Click Yes. Now you can print the user’s schedule from MS Excel.
