    Hi Marc, I'd be happy to help with this question. SimplePractice does offer a feature that makes questions on Intake Forms required. To use it, visit My Account > Settings > Notes and Forms, click on the Intake Form(s) you use to edit them, then click each question. You'll notice the "Require Answer" checkbox at the bottom. When you check this checkbox, the client must answer the question to complete the form.

    The intake form has all the required fields marked with an asterisk.  We did this when we set things up.  I tried it out and I couldn't complete the form with blank fields.  However, clients have been able to submit the form without it being completed.

    Thoughts?

    Hello,

    I am having the same issue. Clients can view the intake form and decide not to complete it. Totally defeats the purpose of having this in place prior to the session. Is there a way to make completing the intake form a requirement? OR a required form totally?

    Hi Kareem, I'd be happy to help. SimplePractice's Note and Form Templates allow you to mark questions as Required. To set this up, visit My Account > Settings > Notes and Forms, click on the Intake Form you'd like to edit, then click each question. You'll notice the "Require Answer" checkbox at the bottom. When you check this checkbox, the client must answer the question to complete the form.

    Is there a way to see a list of clients whose intake forms were sent - but haven't filled them out yet?

    There sure is! Go to your Reminders tab to find the "You have X amount of clients that did not complete document requests" section, click the downward arrow to it's right to expand the list. Here, you'll see all the clients you've sent documents to that haven't completed them!

    Hi, I was wondering if there is the option to make the insurance Plan ID a required field.  Many of the clients don't complete that portion when they're filling out their intake paperwork, and sometimes the back and forth of obtaining that information prior to benefit verification delays the start of treatment.  Thanks.
