In LocalMed you can enable a Calendar Buffer to allow more control of your provider's schedules!
A Calendar Buffer means that a patient cannot schedule an appointment within a number of hours before the appointment. For example, if you want to have a 24 hour Calendar Buffer, this means patients cannot schedule an appointment that is within 24 hours of the current time.
