Help with calendaring for personal/clinical
Hello - I am new to SimplePractice and struggling with how to coordinate my personal calendar and my availability for clients. We have a front office that schedules clients on my calendar, and will sometimes schedule them when I have a personal appt entered on my personal calendar. Naturally, it isn't going to show in SP. This means that I must double enter events; once in my personal calendar then into the SP calendar. If I forget, then calendars collide creating confusion and delay. Does anyone have any tips on how you manage your calendars between SP and personal? At the same time, I have a family calendar in addition to my personal calendar. I sync my SP calendar with Google and that's helpful for me, but not so helpful for the front office. Thanks!
Hello Toby! I was able to put my Simple Practice Calendar on my phone. Appointments that show on my phone from Simple Practice are only client initials which is nice. Then when I schedule a personal appointment (I use my phone for all things calendar related) and I input the appointment twice (sometimes) - once on my personal gmail calendar and once on my Simple Practice calendar through my phone app. This works well for me. I do have to double check sometimes to make sure that everything on my personal calendar is also input to block time on my SP calendar every so often.
If you look in the Simple Practice settings under calendar you will see the setting options. I am set up for 2-way syncing and the Google account that I use that is synced is my business account with a BAA. Hope that helps!
