The schedule status is a drop-down field in the Schedule screen, as highlighted in Image 1.
PracticeSuite provides a way in which we can change the default schedule status in the scheduler. The following are the steps to do the same.
1. Select Scheduler from the main menu.
2. When the scheduler screen opens, click on the button seen on the upper right corner of the Scheduler screen (highlighted in Image 2). On clicking the button, a drop-down list appears. Select the Scheduler Option from the drop-down, as shown in Image 2.
3. The scheduler status defaults to SCHEDULED when a user creates an appointment. To change the default status, select the appropriate value from the drop-down.
