- Reason for Exception
- On/Off - On Schedule>In the Clinic or Off Schedule>Out of the Office
- Start Date
- End Date
- Allow Override Box- If this box IS checked, a Clinic user HAS the ability to Schedule during this exception. If this box IS NOT checked, a Clinic user can NOT schedule during this exception.
ALWAYS Save your Changes

Enter in your Exception Reason>Save:
You will now see a confirmation message appear after Save button is selected "Added new exception" & Exception added to Selected timeframe on Appointment Book:
Edit Schedule Exception
A Schedule Exception can be moved to a different day/time by opening up your Appointment Book Calendar.

You will see your Appointment book similar to this(This example shows 5 days):
Then simply Drag>Drop the Schedule Exception into it's new day/time. Once completed, you will see a confirmation message at the top displaying "Saved provider exception":
NOTE: Utilizing Option 1 or Option 2 to Add your schedule exception should allow you to move your Schedule Exception to a new day/time. You should also see Admin>Providers mirror the changes you have made.
