  8. Show 'What do you want to do next?' after Quick Bill - When you complete an appointment and use Quick Bill it will open another pop up with "What do you want to do next?" which will include options like book nex appointment or send a discharge letter. This can be toggled on or off.

Video Consultations

This section is where you will choose which provider you wish to use when delivering Telehealth Appointments/Video Consultations.

  1. TM3 Telehealth - Create and use video consultations from within TM3. This is only available for appointments

  2. Other Provider - You can copy and paste a link from an external provider into the appointment details. This will then ensure this information is in the appointment reminders etc. Choose this option if you are using a FREE Zoom account.

  3. None - Turn off all video communication.

Zoom will be available as a direct integration with TM3 in the near future.

Working Days

In here you can set the days that are displayed on your diary. For example, if you work Saturdays and don't work Mondays you can unselect Monday and select Saturday and only these selected days will appear on your diary.

Holiday Dates

If you wish to set aside an entire day in the diary as a holiday you can do this on holiday dates by selecting 'Add Holiday Date.' This will bring up a pop up asking you to enter a date. It will also allow you to enter a date via a calendar.
