  • Give your response a title and add the text into the text field.
  • Click the "Save" button to save your canned comments.
  • Now, next time you are processing a referral, you can select one of your canned responses using the dialogue bubble in the "Scheduling" section of the referral.
  • Note: Canned booking comments are selected from the speech bubble icon in the "Scheduling" section, NOT the "Notes" or "Messaging" sections. Notes recorded in the "Notes" section in the top right corner of an eReferral are internal notes that indicate the status of the referral request.
