Appointment Views

In the Appointments Module, on the right, under the pinboard, is the Appointment View dropdown.

Appointment views determine which operatories, providers, and appointment information will show in the Appointments Module. They also determine the default start time when Open Dental is launched. Multiple views can be set up with any combination of operatories, providers, and patient or appointment information.

Select the appointment view using the View dropdown on the right side of the Appointments module or press an associated function key (F1, F2, etc.) across the top of your keyboard.

The appointment schedule will immediately change to reflect the appointment view settings.

Appointment view examples:

When using Clinics, changing the clinic in the main menu will change the appointment view.

The default appointment view when a user logs on will follow this logic in this order:

  1. The same view active the last time the user logged out.
  2. The view last active on the workstation.
  3. The first available view that is not none.
  4. If no other views, the none view.

The None view can not be edited. When a view is set to None you will see all providers, all operatories, the patients first and last name, and procedures attached to the appointment. If you are using clinics, and you select None on Headquarters, you will be prompted to select a view.

Note: To indicate open/close times on the schedule, see Schedule Setup.
