Summary: If your appointments are completely booked but you still have patients who would like to get on the schedule if a spot opens up, you can keep track of them using the Wait List feature. Today, I’ll show you how to create a wait list in this Cliniko Quick Tip Today, I’ll show you how to create a wait list in this Cliniko Quick Tip.
There are two ways to add patients to a wait list. Both are done through the Appointments feature. First, you can add patients from directly within the wait list, which is accessible under the calendar menu. You can also include when you’d like them to be removed from the wait list, the patient’s availability, and their business and practitioner preferences.
The second option is to create an appointment for a patient and add them to the wait list from there. It will automatically set the wait list removal date to the date of their next appointment. If an earlier spot opens up and the wait-listed patient is selected, their later appointment is then automatically rescheduled and removed.
That is how you create a wait list in Cliniko and that completes this Cliniko Quick Tip. 💡
