Am I able to see which patients have cancelled their appointment via their appointment reminder?
By default, patients have the ability to cancel their appointments through the Reminders system. To check which patients have cancelled via appointment reminder, follow these steps:
- Navigate to Dashboard > Reminders > History
- In the Reminders History section of the page, you can see all historical events, including which patient have cancelled their appointment and when.
- To see only cancellations, click the Status dropdown menu next to Filter By and tick Cancelled.
- You can also choose to filter by date range, reminder type, practitioner and appointment type.
If your practice wishes to have patients call the practice to cancel within a certain timeframe of their appointment, this can be set on the practitioner's profile. For more information, please see: How to add or edit a Practitioner
If your practice prefers to have all cancellations manually approved in the HotDoc sidebar, this can be set on your booking settings. For more information, please see: How can I set up automatic or manual processing of bookings and cancellations?
