    Hi Beth,

    We love feedback and ideas for ways to advance the platform, and if you have a moment I encourage you to add this idea to our Ideas & Suggestions Board. Posting on this board means that members of our Product Team, as well as all members of our Community, have transparent access to review your suggestion. This board is one of our most important resources for understanding which features will have the most value for our community.

    If you're curious, here's more information about how a customer idea can become a SimplePractice feature: Customer feedback: How a customer idea can become a feature in SimplePractice.

    This is a wonderful idea!

     

    It should be a simple button on either the desktop or mobile platform such that the clinician can simply tap the button and the school excuse is emailed to the email address on file for the client.

     

    This would be a great efficiency for many clinicians who work with school aged minors.

    I would like to see this as well. I am new to Simple Practice but have seen this in other systems. Does anyone know if there is a way yet to create and send and excuse to clients/parents virtually or a way to print one out?

    Thank you.

    Hi Dan and Denise, if you haven't done so already, please add this to our  Ideas & Suggestions Board. In the meantime, you can draft a note outside of SimplePractice, use the Upload button to the top right of your client's file to upload it and then hit the Share button to send the letter through the Client Portal.

    I looked all over for a School Excuse because the system that I moved from provided this. I am surprised that it isn't available since it seems like such a simple fix.

    Hi Dr. Richardson, you can also create this as an Assessment in Settings > Notes & Forms > Create New Template. Then go to the client's Overview page > New > Assessment, select it, complete it, then download it. You can either send it to the client outside of SimplePractice, or you can re-uplaod the document by hitting the Upload button to the top right of the client's file, then hit Share to send it through the Client Portal.

    Hi Ruth, 

    I really like this workaround idea for using the assessment option to create an excused absence form. However, when I use this method I keep running into the problem of when I go to print the form, it has a default that places the client's diagnostic information automatically on the form, which would violate confidentiality if I sent this to their school or work. Do you have any ideas on how I could remove the diagnostic info when creating this template?

    I agree! I created my own assessment for this purpose; however, I would like an option to remove the confidential information on the top.

    Maybe another workaround is to add the ability to electronically sign and lock a chart note??? That way, the patient's name and DOB are the only identifying details on the note and can be used in a variety of ways???

    I AGREE, I would really use a feature to generate future or past work/school excuse notes easily.
