In the PAR it calculates # Production Days for Dentist and Hygienist, how does the report pull this information? Is it calculated by the days “open in the schedule set up” even if it is later blocked off? Thank you.
There is a hierarchy of setup in the Appointment Book that it uses. I have attached a tip sheet that might help. From the Appointment Book click on Setup then click on each of the following individually to change hours and days.
1. Practice Appointment Setup – this is global for the whole office. What days could the office possibly be open. This will change the visual open and closed colors on the appointment book.
2. Practice Schedule – this is if you want to close the office for the day or change the hours for the entire office that day. This will change the visual open and closed colors on the appointment book.
3. Provider Setup – this is used for individual providers. You can close their days and change their hours for specific days (vacation, etc). This does NOT change the visual open and closed colors on the appointment book. If you want to see it blocked out you can add an Event.
If the provider is working less than 5 hours it considers it a 1/2 day on the PAR. If you add an Event in the appointment book it stills sees open time under it.
