    Hi Rick - I’ve created a help request on your behalf so that a member of our team can investigate your client reminders further. They’ll be reaching out to you with their findings over email.

    I THOUGHT I had scheduled telehealth, but noticed it was set for office. After repeated attempts to change it without success, I created a completely new appointment on top of my existing one, just so I could have the telehealth appointment time for the session. Not sure how to clear the duplicate or why it was so hard to change.

    Not seeing anything else commented on this.

    Thx. Kathy

    Has this been corrected? I just got a call this morning from a client stating the same thing. I scheduled her for telehealth, the 48 hour email stated telehealth visit but the 24 hr text message stated in office appointment.

    My clients are reporting the same thing. They are getting the text for In Office appointments and not the telehealth video reminders so somehow those aren't showing up.

    I also noticed my 10 minutes prior to telehealth appointment notifications are turned off and my clients said they don't receive those either.

    I am also having clients get two messages about session time one being Telehealth and the other being in the office. Has this been looked at? Any resolution?

    I am having the same problem.  So far I have had two clients drive to my office only to find that I wasn't there (we had a Telehealth session on the calendar).  I added to my reminder email so that it warns to let me know if they receive an inaccurate text reminder.  Beyond that, I don't know what else to do.

    I am also having this same problem and it is very confusing because I am seeing some clients both in person and telehealth depending on the week. Pleas help!

    Hi All - In order to ensure that your clients get Telehealth links to join their appointment, you'll want to enable email appointment reminders for your practice as well as for the individual client, in their Client Info tab. Appointment links are not included in text reminders. Once you've done this, make sure that the appointment's Office Location is set to Telehealth: Video Office. If you've done this, than an email with the link to join the call will be sent during the time you've set email reminders to go out for your practice, in addition to 10 minutes before the appointment start time.
