Cliniko is a cloud-based practice management system—this means that it requires the internet to run. Whether that "internet" be a connection to your modem or your mobile data (via phone or personal hotspot), Cliniko won't run properly unless it's "online".
Now, in most situations, this isn't an issue! A lot of things these days aren't possible without internet, so it's very likely that your clinic or home office is equipped with it. However, there will most likely be a time that you're without internet—and therefore, without access to Cliniko—so being prepared will be important.
☝️Note: There are definitely going to be moments where you can't access Cliniko that you're not planning for—like if your internet goes down at the office or if you were operating on mobile data and all of a sudden you have the dreaded Single Bar of Slow Networks. This guide is meant to help you prepare for those times you know you'll be without adequate internet, like if your ISP tells you they'll be doing work in the area and you'll have no service for a couple of hours, or if you work remotely and know you'll be operating out of a place with little to no network service. However, there's no reason to not be prepared anyways, because you never know when you might be without service.
In this guide, we'll walk you through how you can print a list of all upcoming appointments, which should help to keep you a bit more organised, should you find yourself without internet access!
Generate and print a list of upcoming appointments
The best way to do this will be to use the appointments schedule report. You can opt for daily, weekly, or monthly schedules, and they can be for all businesses and practitioners, or you can create a report for just a certain practitioner and location.
First things first, go into the Reports tab, and then select Appointments schedule:
On the next page, you'll have the option to select your daily, weekly, or monthly schedule:
You can run the report for all practitioners and all businesses, but as mentioned, you can also filter things out by individual practitioner and/or business!
When you've selected the type of appointment report you want, hit that Create report button. You'll then see a report that matches what you've selected. It will include:
A summary of appointments by type.
A summary of how many appointments each practitioner has.
A breakdown of each individual appointment and its details (time, patient, practitioner, type, and patients contact details and reference number, if applicable).
Here's an example of what that report will look like in Cliniko:
☝️Note: The appointments schedule report does not include anything marked as "Did not arrive"—so if you had ten patients booked in a day, but one of them didn't show up and you marked that appointment as DNA, your report would only show nine appointments.
If you wish to print your report, hit that Print button at the top of the page:
A "print dialogue" screen will open up, and you can print it out (or save it as a PDF to your computer!). 🖨Here's what the printed version would look like:
Cliniko has a lot of other handy reports, too! Check them out here. And if you have questions on this report, let our support team know! We're available through the little chat box in the lower-right. 😊💬
