Restart a patient's Recall/Reminder


Ever wanted to restart a patient's Recall/Reminder in HotDoc?

Now you can! 

Some examples of when it might come in handy:

  • A patient has read their reminder, but still hasn’t attended, so you want to try messaging them again.
  • You ‘marked as done’ a patient as they had an appointment, but they didn’t turn up so you need to put them back in the SMS schedule.


Once restarted, the patient will be scheduled to have the 1st message again, as per the template setting (and get a 2nd and 3rd if the template includes that). If the template is a letter only, then the patient will appear in the 'To Post' page.

To restart the Recall, you can either click on the individual patient, and click 'Start again':



Or if you have several patients, you can click multiple patients and use 'Batch Actions':
