Creating specific appointment types can help with scheduling visits properly: one-on-one versus multiple appointments at once, pool versus land therapy, post-op versus pre-op, etc. Also, it enables therapists to quickly see what is scheduled. Finally, the information is available in reports, providing statistics on the types of visits. Each appointment type can have a different color and default length.

- Click on Administration
- Select General Information
- Locate Schedule
- Click on Appointment Types
- Right-click Add
- Enter the name of your Appointment Type
- Enter the default duration of the appointment in minutes (example: 60)
- Click OK
Select your completed Appointment Type and right-click Set Color to change the color of the appointment and the font color.
You can select the same color twice to make it solid, or two different colors for a gradient effect.
