Our long-term scheduling feature allows patients to book online check-in reservations up to a month in advance. You can set the intervals of long-term scheduling to be <1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks>.
How to Turn on Long Term Scheduling
Step 1: Navigate to Online/Walk-in Module > Patient Queue Settings.
Step 2: Scroll to the setting labeled Advanced Booking Limit and click to open it up. Click on the pencil icon next to Online Advanced Booking Limit to start editing.
Step 3: Click into the dropdown list to see all Advanced Booking Limit settings. Select the appropriate time limit. Click Save.
Step 4: Test it out! Go to your online form and see if you can book a time slot as far in the future as your set the advanced booking limit.
Note: Sometimes it can take upwards of 20 minutes for this setting to take effect. If you do not see the change right away, don't worry, it probably hasn't loaded yet. Give it 20 minutes and check back again.
Before: (with a ABL=24hrs, only see Today and Tomorrow)
After (with a ABL=1week, I am able to book from Wednesday to Wednesday)
Future features to come: We are working on enhancing our reservation engine to support scheduling for reservations beyond four weeks in advance.
