Your first patient just arrived, and you want to process them in Cliniko. Here's exactly what you'll need to do!

Check a patient in by marking them as "arrived"

Head to the Appointments page, and then click on the patient/appointment you wish to check in:

Click the Arrived button on the appointment pop-up:

You'll see a little "arrival icon" on the appointment:

And if you click into it again, you'll see that it says Arrived:

That's all you need to do! Cliniko will now log this patient as arrived, and it will even notify the practitioner of the patient's arrival, by way of a little "ding" on their computer (which they'll hear as long as their volume is turned up!).

On the flip side, did someone not show up? You can mark them as "Did not arrive". Head over here to learn how to do that!
