In the following example, the surgery has allocated Dr Findacure as a duty doctor for the
morning session. Appointments should not be made in this slot. Patients are allowed to make
appointments in the pink-coloured time slots. By default, all colours are shown as available.
However, practice managers can change this by allowing only one nominated colour to be shown.
Step 1: Identify the colour to show on Appointuit.com
Identify which colour should be shown from Best Practice. Each colour is defined using a triplet
of unique numbers. In the diagram below, white colour is identified by the numbers 255, 255,
Strawberry pink is 255, 128, 128.
Step 2: Start the Appointuit Connector
Step 3: Select Settings
Step 4: Change the colour settings
On the lower left corner, Appointuit may state “Show any cells - colour coding does not matter”
This could be changed by selecting the button with the ellipsis. (see diagram)
Step 5 Nominate the colour
Check the box “Show only appointments with this colour” and fill the set of three numbers from
the first step.
Any appointment slots that does not match the colour will be hidden from the patient.
