Engagement provides you with an Online Appointment Request link that can be accessed in your Engagement Settings. This will enable a link that can be sent out to patients and allows them to request an appointment for your available times according to your Practice Management Software. This will help to simplify the scheduling process for patients and save time when reaching out to unscheduled patients.

Share Appointment Request Links with Patients
Once the link has been copied, paste it into a template to use for quick loading messages in patient chats, or create a new message by accessing the patient three-dot menu
From the three-dot menu, hover over Communication, then select Send a Direct Message
Here you can add text, templates or placeholders as needed
Paste the link or select the template that you have added the link to

Managing Appointment Request Notifications
