How to cancel appointments when I'm on Vacation?

    Hi Sabrina, creating a new all-day appointment in your Calendar will prevent new appointments from being booked for that day via Online Booking, but won't cancel the existing appointments. To remove the existing appointments from the calendar, you can either delete them by clicking the appointment, then the trash can icon, or you can cancel them by clicking the appointment and selecting "Cancelled" under Status.

    Dear Gillian,

    Is there any way to cancel a batch of appointments or do i have to go in and cancel each on individually when I am on vacation?

    I am wondering the same question.  For example, if I want to block a week for Christmas vacation, do I need to delete each individual appt for that week?

    Hi David and Rochelle, there is not currently a way to batch delete appointments - to clear your schedule for a longer period of time, you'll just want to delete each appointment in that timeframe individually.

    Thanks, Gillian--That's a pity. A 'Select All' feature for batch deletions would be nice.

    I agree with the request for batch cancellations/deletions- I’ll be going out on maternity leave for 4 months, and this will be quite time consuming to cancel each sessions individually for all of these weeks.

    Yes, I would very much appreciate having a batch delete feature, too!

    Gillian, 

     

    I click on the link and it takes me to a sign in page, but says my login is incorrect.  I'm using the same one that I use to sign in to SimplePractice account, but it doesn't work.

    I requested a way to mark vacation time on the calendar over a year ago! Self care is important a how about away to add vacation days or weeks as a beautiful color on our calendars?   I mark clients as canceled which is not correct.  We need a way to Mark time out that is accurate.  I keep the clients name there since I need to see their pattern of appointments.  It looks like they canceled.  Jeez, it should be easy to add vacation as an option. Their vacation or ours. If you believe self care is important then prove it.

    It should be much easier to batch cancel repeating appointments when out of town. Please add this feature!
