You can specify the days and times your Clinical Reminders and Results SMS will send through your HotDoc Dashboard.
It is recommended that you consider when you and your reception team will be most equipped to handle any patient enquiries as a result of sending the SMS recalls out. By default, we generally recommend that you set:

- Not to send on weekends
