can you add a practitioners column to a once off date without it disappearing every time you close the program?

Hi Barb. Presently, the only way to make a practitioner's column appear permanently on the diary is to add their column in System Information > Appointment Book > Columns and to ensure the days they are working on are setup in the 'Prac Days' window. The 'Practitioners' utility on the diary will only add the practitioner's column temporarily on the day you have selected, removing the added column when the appointment book or Front Desk is closed.

We are open to change, and will leave this idea open for input from other users.

I would love it if, I could have a "set and forget" type thing with columns - at present, I am opening up prac days a few weeks in advance, blocking out the practitioner until their commencement date and opening up their books from then, meanwhile their column still shows in the appt book and takes up space. It would be great if it just opens up at the time of their commencement, however I have no idea how you could achieve this.

Agreed. I have asked for this too - only showing the practitioners available on the day would make it so much easier to read.  With the amount of therapists we have covering ad hoc we have a very wide appointment book at times and have to keep reviewing the schedule to try and turn off columns again so that it fits on a notebook screen.
