Note: This step is optional. This setting is used to configure the same provider's schedule in multiple different ways.
You can create multiple configurations for the same provider schedule. This can be helpful for a variety of reasons. For example, if a provider hosts a specialty clinic once a month and wanted a separate online booking link for those specialty appointments only, they could configure their default schedule to accept regular appointments, and their alternate schedule to accept speciality appointments. To reduce confusion, we recommend setting a different "Patient friendly schedule name" for each configuration of the same provider schedule.
Navigate to Ocean's online booking settings.
- Login to the Ocean Portal. Click the "Menu" button in the top left corner and select "Online Booking". Click the "Settings" button in the top right corner.
- Next to the provider schedules you would like to edit, click Edit.
Add and configure your alternate schedule.
- Next to the Default Configuration heading, click Add Alternate Configuration. Scroll down to find a new Alternate Configuration heading and setting below.
- Ensure you configure a different "Patient friendly schedule name" for your Alternate Configuration. An Alternate Configuration will inherit all of the settings from the default configuration. To change the settings for an Alternate Configuration, simply click the Change button next to Inherited from Default Configuration under each setting.
