How do I update the estimated wait time for multiple referrals at once?

If a referral appointment cannot be scheduled right away, you can communicate an estimated wait time to the patient and referring provider by selecting it from the 'Anticipated Time to Appointment' drop down menu in the Scheduling pane of the referral.

Updating in Bulk
