    I need color coding to know whether it is initial consultation appointment or follow up appointment or other services.

    I agree with the suggestion on color coding. It will help me distinguish my online sessions from my office sessions.

    I agree. Love to be able to distinguish between new evaluations and follow-up appointments at a glance on the calendar!

    I agree, some kind of coding (color or icon) would be extremely helpful. Some of my patients are seen for just 15 mins, others for 30 minutes or an hour. Some of them use a particular resource, others don't. Color coding the appointments will help the front office schedule appointments efficiently.

    In order to check whether or not an upcoming client has completed their intake paperwork, it would REALLY help for intake appointments to be color coded so I'm not checking every appointment for every clinician in our group practice each day. Would love this edit to happen!

    Is this becoming a feature? I really would like/need the ability to id appointments on the calendar.

    Me too!  Please...also a way to know if a client has arrived or completed an appointment and left.  We have more than 1 or 2 Therapists and it would be very helpful.

     

    Thank  you

    Hi Alisha, when you use SimplePractice's integrated Telehealth feature, online sessions will be distinguished from office sessions by a video camera icon and a different colored stripe on the left-hand side of the session. Are you using SimplePractice's integrated Telehealth?

    My old EHR would color code session type and it was great. It is so hard for admin to look and see how many new clients are being booked without opening up the session. In addition it is helpful for the clinicians to be able to distinguish between the sessions

    Yes, this would help so very much!! Definitely distinguish between intakes and reoccuring sessions. It is also helpful to distinguish between different session lengths (IE: 90837 code versus 90834 or couples/family sessions 90846). If we are given a choice to color code our services, then the developers do not need to preset colors for various services, just give us a choice to do it manually.

    Color coding is vital for scheduling purposes. It would be good to be able to have a different color for assessment, 90837, 90834 ect

    The inability to color code my clients according to intake and other things such as age make the system difficult for my administrators.

    Apparently - SP users have been asking for more color coding options for the scheduling for years and SP has done nothing.  I am going with another provider for our EMR system as a result of this.  One clinic that used SP indicated that they were told years ago that this would be done - and still nothing.

    As I believe I suggested a few months ago, alongside color coding (which I would like to see for weekly and biweekly clients) I would like to see a (color) code or a mechanism for rescheduling clients that saves the original space (perhaps by entering an option of 'reschedule' in the drop down for show/cancellation/noshow).  Would be a huge time saver.  Right now, the task of tracking reschedules (without leaving a vacant spot on the calendar for the original appt) is a nightmare.

    Color coding would be great!  Not only for the different types of visits but to utilize for meetings and time off as well.

    I agree -- I need the color coding for my admin to see who is a new patient more easily.
