    Hi Heather​,

    We briefly experienced an issue with our appointment reminders feature. We have resolved this and your data is safe. We understand that some clients may have received appointment reminders citing the wrong appointment time. 

    We do apologize for any disruption this may have caused you. We constantly test our product, but sometimes our customers experience issues that we need to address. In those rare cases, we escalate the reported issues immediately to our engineering team so that they can quickly apply the necessary fixes. This is what happened on 6/24/19 with our appointment reminders feature.

    We’re continuing to make every effort to avoid disruptions like this because we understand the importance of your work.

    Please let us know if we can help with anything else.

    Kind regards,

    I think that it would be helpful if the name/time/date is on the pop up window so that time info can be confirmed before the text reminder is sent after scheduling the follow up appt.

    I find that I THINK I'm creating the appt for 9am for example, but bc of a slight misplacement of my mouse cursor,  it loads as 9:15am and I am not aware of it until the text reminder is sent and the appt shows at 9:15 on my calendar. As a result, my clients are getting incorrect and corrected texts. 

    Thanks for considering this enhancement.

    Thank you for posting this we had the same thing happen. I was wondering if somehow we had done something in error. We had patient's showing up at the wrong time.

    We are still having issues with the wrong time zone at our office.  As of July 1st.  Is this being addressed still?

    Thank you!

    It seems sporadic (or most clients don't check their reminders). My first appointment this morning did not receive her reminder and called to confirm her appointment. No one else reported an issue today.

    I would encourage you to add it to our Ideas and Suggestions board.

    I received an email from a client with a similar concern. Her reminder says our appointment is at 12pm when it is scheduled for 1pm. We are both checking to see if our calendars are set to MST. Is this a system error?
