Adding appointments to the ASAP List
If a patient wants an appointment sooner than your next available time, you can flag scheduled appointments as ASAP or As Soon As Possible. Once you flag an appointment as ASAP, it appears on the ASAP List. This satisfies the patient's request for an appointment sooner than the first available one and provides you with a list of patients you can fill holes with in an otherwise full schedule.
Note: You cannot add patients to the ASAP List without first assigning them an appointment time. This ensures that you see the patient whether or not you have an opening before the scheduled date. If a patient does not appear on the ASAP List, click View and increase the Span of Search to 99 days.
To add an appointment to the ASAP List
1. In the Appointment Book, double-click the appointment that you want to specify as ASAP.
The Appointment Information dialog box appears.
2. In the Schedule list, select ASAP.
3. Click OK.
