The HotDoc Sidebar will usually start automatically upon signing into your computer user. However, if the Sidebar has been disabled from this then you can also open it manually.
The HotDoc Sidebar icon should be found on the desktop. Double click on the icon to open.
From here, enter your HotDoc username and password. If you are unsure what your password is, please visit this page to reset it.
Once signed in, you can minimise the Sidebar so it does not interfere with your window. Just click the minimise button and it will work in the background to let you know of any appointments that need actioning.
